In the lush green surroundings of a former fruit orchard, where Thailand’s highest mountains meet the flat rice fields, Panyaden School contracted 24H to design its environmentally friendly school buildings.
Panyaden is a private bilingual school with a Buddhist approach that will accommodate 375 students.
The students will be the ambassadors to introduce green living into the lives of their communities.
The entire school has been built from local earth and local bamboo that has been naturally treated to withstand the elements.
