St Bridget's Montessori

St. Bridget's Montessori, Colombo, 1963–1964

Designed in a manner that “can be visually understood by any intelligent four-year olds”, to quote Bawa, the classrooms at St. Bridget’s Montessori aim to create the impression of a shelter under a tree, with openings in the low walls proportionated for toddlers. The early section here looks at the wide pitched roof, while the final built iteration would include a monitor roof, its central portion lifted to allow for the escape of hot air.
