Haiti School Plans Unveiled

Architects Andy Grogan and Aelan Tierney of Kuhn Riddle Architects show their drawings to Hope of Haiti project director, Haeinn Woo, for the modular classrooms which will form the school to be built for the children living in the tent city in Petionville, Haiti.
None of the children living in the tent city currently attend school. And when plans for the school were announced more than 200 children’s names were placed on a waiting list the first day.

The cinder block stand-alone classrooms can be built individually and clustered together to form the school.

Each classroom will cost roughly $6,500 including the land and Reader to Reader is fundraising to buy the building materials with the goal of erecting the first several classrooms this summer, so that some of the children can start school in October.

We are grateful to Kuhn Riddle Architects for the generous donation of their architectural services.
