Publisher's description: A Kindergarten in South Africa Christoph Wieser, Niko Nikolla, Beat Waeber & Stefan Zopp (Eds.) Within only a few week's time, architecture students from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, with residents of a township near Johannesburg, planned and built a sustainable kindergarten. The new school is part of the Ithuba Community College campus, a nonprofit organization creating a network within European universities through which students and communities can plan and build sites. This generously illustrated book offers a document of the complete project, from Ithuba's alternative green planning to the building's final execution. A first-time publication for the Swiss Institute of Structural Design, advocating an integrated approach that combines cultural and design questions with aspects of technology, construction, economics and energy efficiency and the interplay between construction and expression.
