Norwegian Students Build Airy Bamboo and Teak Library for Thai Orphans
Looking for more than a vacation in southeast Asia, an amazing set of young, skilled students from Norway set out to change the future for a group of orphans in Thailand. TYIN Tegnestue is a non-profit organization focused on an array of humanitarian projects that hope to provide real solutions through architecture. Run by a group of students from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, a new workshop held at Safe Haven Orphanage located in Ban Tha Song Yang, Thailand, gave way to an incredible new structure for the destitute community. Sourcing local materials and collaborating with locals, the group of students built a beautiful new building that would provide both a bathing house and a library to help with the dire sanitary conditions and the lack of educational resources in the area.
I’ve never heard fo a bath house / library before, but this is pretty lovely, and cool.
