Tania Oramas – INTBAU Excellence Award 2018

Tania Oramas, together with her collective KnitKnot Architecture, has received the INTBAU 2018 Excellence Award in the Community Engagement category for their project ‘El Jicarito School’ in Nicaragua. The jury highlighted that ‘engagement’ in this project happens at many different levels.  Not only at a local level, through on-site design and technical workshops with the community and local builders; but also at a global level, through a crowdfunding campaign designed and run by the architects that reached an international community and was able to raise economic support, as well as increase awareness about the lack of educational facilities in the region.
