The Panyaden International School Campus
Panyaden International School is an example of modern earth and bamboo architecture. The school was conceived to provide an atmosphere that is peaceful and close to nature. Furthermore this green school wants to demonstrate how to live an environmentally mindful life with a low carbon footprint. Therefore to facilitate green mindfulness, earth/clay, stones and bamboo were chosen as the main construction materials.
Walls are built either from rammed earth or adobe bricks (clay mixed with sand and rice husk). The roofs are built entirely from treated bamboo.
There is no need for air-conditioning. All rooms are cooled and ventilated through the choice of materials and green architecture design.
The layout is based on the antler-fern leaf structure.
