Welcome to Rising Architecture

We are a student body from Technical University Berlin (TU Berlin), planning the design and build of a Primary School for 250 children in Cameroon. Our team comprises of 15 students from all different background, currently under taking Architectural studies at TU Berlin. Beginning in Spring (April) 2013 it is with close collaboration with the Berlin/Bertoua based NGO "Hope Foundation" we will conceptualize and construct the Primary School in Cameroon. Bertoua, is the capital of the eastern province of Cameroon, which is among the poorest regions of the country.

In Cameroon, along with many of it’s neighboring nations, there exists a lack of education, which effects every aspect of life for People and society in the region. This must change, and hence our project, RISING EDUCATION. In realizing the school, one of the key goals for our project is to develop participatory process with the local population including them through the design process, adapting their needs, not our idea of what they need. The school is to be built in the coming Spring, 2014. The people of Bertoua will be involved in all phases; the designing, planning and construction process.

Our Motivation

  • Das Ziel ist, mit unserem Wissen und den Erfahrungen von anderen Mitwirkenden, Kindern eine Grundschule in ihrer Nähe zu ermöglichen. Bildung ist Zukunft.

    Rising Education

  • Die Bevölkerung muss beim gesamten Planungs- und Bauprozess beteilig werden. Nur so ist eine dauerhafte Akzeptanz zu erreichen.
