Karari Elementary School
Khartoum, Sudan
A low-cost, easily constructed school serving as a prototype model for future schools. The school was constructed on a desert site and comprises seven, identical, parabolic buildings containing classrooms and the director's office. The school accomodates 320 students and faculty. The structures are constructed using a parabolic brick arch with the aid of timber shuttering. The roofs overhang on both sides to provide shaded entryways.
