scs: eco moyo ll
Fall semester 2017
Following last semester’s completion of two classrooms for Eco Moyo Education Centre, SCS has been invited back to build another classroom with a small library attached to it. After the usual competition based process the studio chose to build the project presented below. Eco Moyo is an educational Community Based Organisation located in Ezamoyo in Kilifi county, Kenya, providing free education to children from poor families. Eco Moyo have recently bought a 5 hectares site half an hour drive from Kilifi town center. Eco Moyo have been developing the site that now has housing for the director and teachers, accomodation for 20 students boarding at the school, a dining and cooking building, administrative offices, and three classrooms catering for 75 students. (see The Scarcity and Creativity Studio (SCS) will design build another classroom and small library allowing Eco Moyo to provide education for another 25 students.
