The building is designed for an existing school called Kibera Hamlets, which provides education for orphans and severely disadvantaged children.
The Kibera project has an interesting backstory - the initial design and materials were funded by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, who wanted a pavilion for an African art exhibition.
Architects Selgas Cano then cleverly designed the structure with the school in Kibera in mind.
