Millennium School is a design competition for school buildings in developing countries located in the tropics. The Millennium School Design Competition is part of the Be Better Build Better Campaign and aims to solicit the best architecture-for-humanity designs from all over the world. Architects shall be brought together in a collective effort to try to find solutions to the problems of school buildings in the developing world, and in particular those that are constantly faced by natural disasters like typhoons, flash floods and earthquakes. The competition will facilitate the emergence of new sustainable design solutions and appropriate technologies that will improve the quality of school buildings in the developing world. The competition will offer a venue for the practice of architecture for a client group that would otherwise have no access to design professionals that can solve their problems.
