The Cube / School and Library

The Cube
The Cube

The Cube is a mobile school and library that can be easily transported with a truck and it only measures 2x2x2m. This space is designed for 36 children because it contains the same number of boxes that serve as a stool and at the same time, school supplies and books can be stored. Anyone can access and get a book to read.
In this way, culture is promoted and families in Sub-Saharan Africa who don't have access to education are helped. Also, with the current pandemic children could go to this school because it is outdoors and the two-meter separation can be guaranteed.
