How can design create learning hotspots within remote regions that promote learning for the willing? When schools close down, how can this vast information pool available to us reach these under-served regions?

Brief: The goal is to design a modular reading and learning space that is safe, compact, and socially conscious, built for children in a rural area.
The facility is supposed to have a design scheme that is easy to use and durable in the long run. The context of the rural site requires attention since its economic, socio-cultural, and environmental aspects must be responded to. Local materials and techniques must be used to design in a way that resonates with the people of the locality. The construction must be agile and independent with minimal resource requirements, for it to be an economical design.

The aim of the design will be to promote education and its access to the local community. The rural library will have more extensive activities that can be accommodated in multi-functional spaces. It must be a modular design that can be replicated in similar contexts around the world.
