Ten Caribbean School of Architecture students made history by participating in the first ever International Dezeen Virtual Design Festival. Dezeen is one of the world’s leading digital magazines on architecture, interiors and design.
The students’ designs focused on architectural solutions for the city of Montego Bay. Students had to identify friction points in the city’s urban planning while reimagining its fabric to encourage social equity and environmental health.
The proposals ranged from publicly accessible sports and cultural centres to mixed-use, affordable housing, all incorporating sustainable practices such as rainwater harvesting, passive cooling or self-cleaning concrete.
The exhibition closes tomorrow, June 30th, and can be viewed at: https://www.dezeen.com/2020/06/12/caribbean-school-of-architecture-vdf-school-shows/.
