Baban Seth Quarry Community Classroom, Navi Mumbai, India by ASD Projects
ASD Projects built this classroom with help from a local non-governmental organisation and quarry residents
It is set within the stone quarry communities of Navi Mumbai, beside a large industrial zone, and all work had to be carried out manually due to restricted access to the location.
Stone from the quarry has been used in the construction of walls, seats and floor tiles, stone dust for render and rubble for hardcore. A painted, small-section steel frame and grille create an enclosure for the classroom. The laminated corrugated PVC roof has a translucent central section to admit light and rests on steel trusses on a steel frame.
