Madonna Builds Eco-Friendly School in Malawi

Madonna started a school! The Raising Malawi Academy for Girls consists of 46 hectares and will have a library and administration building, dining hall, gymnasium, wellness center, sports field, 30 classrooms, 12 dormitories and 18 staff houses. The design was centered around optimizing natural day lighting and ventilation to minimize energy use and take advantage of the natural site conditions. Mostly constructed out of locally sourced Hydraform bricks, which are made from on-site soil, the builders can avoid using “burned bricks which have been largely responsible for wide spread deforestation in Malawi.” Check out the full article about the school and more pictures here at
