For the longest time, there was not a single school in Manabi, a remote fishing village in Ecuador, so a group of people led by a devoted teacher decided to do something about it. Built on pilings on the beach, Nueva Esperanza (which means new hope in Spanish) was constructed in accordance with the community’s longstanding vernacular. With no shortage of natural ventilation or daylighting, this lovely space is lined with colorful books, but it doesn’t feel like torture to be inside.
The teacher told Architizer that the school, which allows the children to discover whole new worlds that sprout from their inner lives, has become a source of pride and unity for the entire community.

Skylar Nagy is a highly motivated 17-year-old high school senior, Army private, and a boat builder, and is getting psyched to race her 8-foot Cocktail Class cruiser this Sunday in the third annual Aqua Cup Race across Captain’s Cove. As reported in the News-Times, Nagy is a senior at Shelton High School and is also a student at the Bridgeport Regional Vocational Aquaculture School, where she learned how to build her boat in the marine construction shop at the Aquaculture School. Nagy enlisted in the Army this past April, and has always been interested in marine biology.

Offering a total scenic package, this park is located at the end of Hanover Road in Newtown, on Lake Lillinonah.
All boats must be properly registered and meet all boating regulations as pertaining to safety equipment, such as no open exhaust or excessive noise. The EQUINOX project was conceived as a counter sister project to the earlier Caesar’s Park Boathouse, and as such they share opposite sides of the same site. Eschewing conventional concrete boxes that look and feel more like prisons than schools, the village opted for an organic boat-shaped structure made with natural materials in order to foster the children's connection to nature.
Plus, given the location, outdoor education comprises a fundamental part of the curriculum. Even though she’s not a big fan of the color pink, she decided on that color to honor her grandmother, who successfully battled breast cancer.


The program consists of creating a school for the creation of traditional skin boats, and a small residence for the owner of the school; these skinboats would then be used in the boathouse across the bridge. These boats take hundreds of hours of work, but luckily, all the boats have sponsors, so the materials are free to the students. The double skin façade is composed of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and is clad in corrugated metal panels. After graduation, Nagy heads off to basic training and then special training as an Aircraft Structural Repairer, all part of her eight year commitment in the Connecticut National Guard. This double skin acts as a rain screen and allows from deep window mullions to be placed in between the SIP panels that distribute light across the space bellow.
