Teacher Training College is renting space from the local church in Noh Bo and has long needed a new kitchen and dining room. TTC will always have a good standing for us and since we have also not worked for the church for many years, it was an easy project to accept. It was also an appropriate project to introduce Daniel to work along the border.
We started the design process with a joint inspection on site and a common brainstorming around size, function, shape and materials with all of Gyaw Gyaw and representatives from TTC present. Daniel then continued the process from Trondheim (Norway) with feedbacks from Jae in Berlin (Germany), Line in Årnes (Norway) and Paw Eh Wah and the team in Noh Bo. This was the first time a design was drawn from another place and cooperation done across continents, but Paw Eh Wah maintained the relation with the school and the church, gave feedbacks to the architects and tied it all together.
As usual, most of the frames changed along the way, but with years of experience, Paw Eh Wah lead the project with a steady hand. She was also a clear voice on behalf of the team and the school during the design process, and a strong leader for everyone during the construction period. Line had the overall responsibility and pulled the strings when necessary.
