New work ::: Sra Pou vocational school, Cambodia

The vocational training centre and community building in the village of Sra Pou in Cambodia was designed by Finnish architects Rudanko + Kankkunen. Originally a conceptual project, the architects turned into fruition starting their own practice to complete the building with the assistance of the NGO Blue Tent in the spring of 2011.

The 200 m2 school building is comprised of local red sundried soil blocks and made by a local workforce utilizing no machines or prefabricated parts. The aim was to teach people how to make the most out of the available materials and teach building techniques the workers could employ to their own houses in the future.
