A new school in Port-au-Prince Haiti for English in Mind Institute is designed for endurance. Beyond the standard school functions, this building must procure its own water, ventilate itself, treat and return its waste to the earth, create its own energy and store it for the future, endure both seismic movement and hurricane-force winds, utilize locally available materials and provide a model garden to enable food to be grown in depleted earth.
