ARCHITECTS FOR AID EL SHADDAI CHARITABLE TRUST

IF_UNTITED were commissioned by Architects for Aid as consultants to work with the Local NGO partners in India (El Shaddai) to design and manage the construction of a new school building. The local NGO has been working for the street children in the region since 1996, by providing food, shelter and access to education for these underprivileged children. To support these Children IF_UNTITED architects had spent 6 months living amongst the community in India designing, managing and facilitating an inclusive design process for the construction project, and by facilitating intensive user group workshops which emphasized the involvement of all parties. This generated many "out of the box" design solutions we believe has enriched the final school building which has been completed in 2007.
