PANYADEN SCHOOL IN CHIANG MAI
June 11th, 2011

In the lush green surroundings of a former fruit orchard, where Thailand’s highest mountains meet the flat rice fields, Panyaden School contracted 24H to design its environmentally friendly school buildings. Located south of the city of Chiang Mai, this 5,000 m2 primary school consists of an informal arrangement of pavilions (salas), organized along pathways inspired by the shape of the tropical antler horn fern.


This original design has since evolved organically and still keeps to its original purpose of creating buildings from earth’s elements and shapes that are an ode to nature’s beauty.The entire school has been built from local earth and local bamboo that has been naturally treated to withstand the elements. Organic vegetables and rice will be grown on school property. Environmentally friendly waste water treatment and food waste recycling producing organic fertilizers and biogas for cooking, round up the picture of an environmentally friendly school with a negligible carbon footprint.
