Channels for learning – a zero-energy campus for impoverished students in Siem Reap, Cambodia
Siobhan Rockcastle presented her project for a zero-energy campus in Cambodia. The campus is also conceived to give students with no money an opportunity for academic training. The most important energy-related issues in the region are rainwater distribution and the use of wind.
Rockcastle shows how both of these natural resources can be optimally used. The campus is laid out on a northsouth axis in response to winds, and the roofs are designed to collect rainwater.
