Mubuga Primary School, Musanze District, Rwanda, 2015
In 2015 MASS Design Group completed the Mubuga Primary School to serve as a model for Rwandan public education and create an exemplary comfortable, healthy, and playful learning environment.
The facility features new prototypical classrooms that ensure adequate daylight, ventilation, and acoustics for engaged learning, as well as an Advanced Education Center with a library and teachers’ resources space.
The school is landscaped with distinct play areas, a volley ball court, and outdoor education areas, creating a campus with an emphasis on play and sports as a means to promote healing and unity.
The construction utilized local materials, techniques, and labor, to ensure design solutions are replicable locally to address issues of school infrastructure throughout the region.
