Situated in Kabul University, the dreamer institute is a technology campus imagined between yale university, the government of afghanistan, and the digital citizen fund—a nonprofit that promotes tech education for girls in the developing world. the program calls for an education center to be used by high school students and a public innovation center. the nature of these two distinct but interdependent centers led to a nested scheme in which one wraps around the other, drawing inspiration from fortified villages of the region. connection points serve as bridges between the structures for future unification and the program is organized in mixed clusters that include labs, breakout rooms, and classes for collaboration. the project raises provocations on how architecture can be used to propel innovative thinking, cultural identity, and influence social behavior while remaining contextual.
