The Shebraber School [1]is a collaborative project designed by EthiopiaStudio2.0 [1], a second-generation team of eleven Arizona State University M.Arch graduate students led by practicing local architect Jack DeBartolo III. Last fall students had the unique opportunity to travel to a remote village community 120 miles southwest of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to research, develop, and design new classrooms and administration buildings for a school serving children within a 10km radius — many of whom walk hours for the chance to attend. The new buildings will support the local administration in meeting the educational needs of the community, and providing opportunities for the children of Shebraber. This renovation/addition will increase the number and quality of classrooms, provide spaces for a library and computer center, and will bring hope for the future by changing the cycle of poverty through education.
