Project name: Ruhehe Primary School
Project location: Musanze District, Rwanda

Jury comments: Landscape drives this school’s design both visually and logistically. Use of local materials and labor provide an investment in the community while minimizing the environmental impact of bringing in goods. Women were included in the project at all levels.
