Technical School in East Africa

Ck out this website: in order to see some details of a design-build project Boa Construction is helping sponsor. They are using locally available material and a team approach to produce a sustainable result.

"The Samé Polytechnic Project is a collaborative design effort between five disciplines comprised entirely of students of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. The students are representatives from the majors of architecture, architectural engineering, construction management, city and regional planning, and landscape architecture and together, form one interdisciplinary team. The team is responsible for designing a technical college to be built in the northern region of the United Republic of Tanzania in Eastern Africa."
One of the project participants has a travel blog: Take a look @ these sites when you get a chance and help out if you can.
