Year: 2013 | Type: Competition | Location: Honduras | Team: Ghislaine GARCIA and Allison ZUCK
Participating in Global Architecture Brigades, our team designed a rainwater collection system for an existing Primary and Secondary School in Santa Rosa, Honduras. The systems services the school’s existing and new toilets, kitchen and community garden.
Modulos de la Lluvia (Rain Modules) accomplishes all goals of the project while also creating an additional public space. Planter boxes are placed directly under the existing roof; rainwater that has fallen into the planters is naturally filtered through the soil and collected into water storage containers. The collected water can either be removed via access panels or piped to designated services. Underneath the roof, the planter boxes become benches and tables, creating an enjoyable outdoor setting in any weather.
