Scalable School

At the largest scale, the Scalable School performs vital ecological and social services, such as filtering/collecting rain water, recycling/reusing grey water, and rooting green walls. These functions create spaces for community gathering through sharing resources and allowing for programs such as community gardens, and public kitchens. The buildings green and wet operations are then further deployed to create flexible classrooms that are defined by moveable and flexible walls. These walls made of vegetation, and water allow for students to determine the scale, and orientation of their learning spaces.
