A Revolution in Education and Design

The act of formulating ideas is fantastic.
-Tay Kheng Soon, Architect of the Mechai Pattana School

Designed by the famous Singaporean architect, Mr. Tay Kheng Soon, the school is constructed entirely of bamboo utilizing a special preservation technique that will ensure structural integrity for almost 80 years. This constructions reflects the school’s commitment to preserving the environment. The unique buildings include a Design & Climate Change Center, the Bill Gates Sr. Barefoot Philanthropy Academy, an IT Center, a media studio, as well as the world’s largest bamboo geodesic dome which is 30 meters in diameter.  Students are encouraged to take part in horticulture and agriculture activities right on school grounds, and new techniques are devised which will benefit the surrounding rural community.
