This charming straw bale [1] classroom in Cuernavaca, Mexico is actually a Waldforf preschool that was designed and built with the help of the local community over an 8 week period. Laboratorio Arquitectura Básica Mx [2] led workshops and building sessions to raise the roof on this strawbale building, bringing the community together in a really positive way.
