ÉCOLE ÉLIE DUBOIS RENOVATION | PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAÏTI
Client: Architecture for Humanity
École Élie Dubois is an all girls secondary school located in the historic district of Port-au-Prince, a few blocks fromt the National Palace. Established in 1913 by the Community of the Daughters of Mary, École Élie Dubois began as a vocational boarding school. The school currently offers the standard Baccalaureate curriculum as well as professional skills and vocational training courses for embroidery, fashion, and decorative arts. The original historic classroom building, which faces the main entrance on Rue du Centre, will undergo a complete renovation. The restoration work on this historic campus is supported by the Barefoot Foundation, Fondation CINA, Students Rebuild with the Bezos family Foundation and Interamerican Development Bank (IDB).
As an architectrual consultant for Architecture for Humanity, I coordinated the architectural and structural team to produce the Construction Documents for the rehabilitation of Ecole Elie Dubois.
