Xukuru do Ororubá

The Xukuru Schools
I am researching their educational system through the 42 existing elementary schools and their only high school which supply their demands for around 4000 students. Many students leave the reservation to other urban centers in order to continue their education. This is one of the problems faced by the Xukuru people.

There is a strong lack of adequate physical spaces that reflect the Xukuru culture and that could be used for their activities. The schools have a precarious infrastructure which does not support their educational process improvement. This gap can be filled with an architectural intervention.
