Collaborative Sustainable Campus Design for Macaneta Beach, Mozambique Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In recent years, Mozambique has suffered from nationwide inequalities in education and infrastructure. To combat these inequalities, local leaders in the town of Macaneta sought assistance designing a university campus that will increase access to education while promoting sustainability and maintaining affordability. This project, developed as a capstone for the Architectural Engineering department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, provides designs and recommendations for two initial buildings at the Macaneta Beach campus, including mechanical and structural analyses of shipping containers to be used as modular building components. This use of shipping containers helps achieve sustainability and affordability for campus development, and these initial plans will provide the necessary starting point for the mission created by Mozambican partners, allowing this project to be expanded upon in the future.
