The METI school in Rudrapur Dinajpu, Bangledesh teaches the invaluable lesson of green design through its very earthen structure. Architects Anna Heringer and Eike Roswag directed a team of local parents, teachers, school children and craftsman in building the primary school by hand using raw materials including bamboo, straw, jute rope and the ancient building material cob (a layered mixture of wet earth, rice, straw and jute). Completed in just four months time, the collaborative effort has created a meaningful environment wherein rural children may pave a more fruitful future for themselves by receiving an education.
