Local architectural wonder among finalists in Dezeen Awards

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

An eye-catching, modernist school building in Battambang province is among the finalists in the 2019 Dezeen Awards.

The Adventurous Global School (AGS), which was designed by Orient Occident Atelier of Hong Kong, was among 53 architecture projects from around the world that made it to the shortlist. The list of finalists was released last week by the awards’ organisers.

Opened two years ago, AGS incorporates a unique and innovative design described in the awards website as “covered in a grid-like structure to create a versatile and flexible learning space”.

AGS, which is located in Sneung village in Battambang, was built as part of a project to help underprivileged children in rural areas of Cambodia. Its construction was co-funded by Adventurous Global School-Charity in Hong Kong, Vision Du Monde in France and Projectmac in Australia.

In addition to AGS, two other entries from Cambodia – The Factory and Atelier Kampot – made it to the longlist. Both were designed by Bloom Architecture, a Phnom Penh-based boutique architecture company, but could not make it to the shortlist.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
