Plug n Play

Chaukor Studio as Architects

Attributable to today’s technological inventions, business and communication has evolved in the most unexpected ways possible. Today, innovations being thought of in some office space in USA are being manufactured in geographically distant countries and being assembled in a small town in Africa. This is not just happening in metro cities of the world, but even the remotest parts of the world are not untouched with this process. So, if a branded pair of shoes can be ordered in some small part of the world, which might lack even basic infrastructural resources, then why not, a School?


There are several remote villages in the world that lack the infrastructure and facilities of a school. Gaining an education is important, but how does one achieve it when the nearest school is 20km away? With the ever-increasing population growth in so many developing countries, the demand for education also increases. The investment of time and affordability of this provision plays a major role in deciding how one can provide schooling in these areas. Can we build a school that can be speedily constructed in the most efficient manner possible and provide for flexible multi-functional spaces that can be used for different activities, yet be affordable for poor people to gain an education? Plug ‘n’ Play is an approach to the design of a modular school that offers the end user with the flexibility and ease to “plug” various materials as per the functional requirement, climate, cost and regional availability. A modular school could effectively increase the affordability of a structure where the spaces could be transformed according to the need of the users. The school will thus provide creative and comfortable spaces for the children. It would be cost and time efficient as well as help provide local employment.
