Ulyankulu furniture designed for a new school in Tanzania, in collaboration with Jeju Studio, Arh+ Pracownia Architektoniczna and Wayair foundation. The proposals use materials, details and craftsmanship from Ulyankulu region and creates sustainable and socially inclusive designs.

"Ulyankulu is a young, small town in Tanzania. Its a result of migrations of thousands of Burundi refugees in 1970’. Project is based on an in depth onsite research by both educators, migration experts, ethnographers and finally architects. All phases of the project were conducted in a cooperation with local community, organisations, leaders and schools.

The fundamental idea of the Ulyankulu School is to create not only a building for education, but a space that can accommodate and stimulate social activities. This is why we call this proposal an educational village.”
