Founded in 2008, Royal Scottish Academy award winning Orkidstudio is a non-profit design organisation that focuses on communities and young people, seeking to deploy architecture’s ability to provide relief to impoverished areas or those affected by disasters.

In autumn 2012, the charity Orkidstudio put out a call for young designers and architecture students to help design, build and raise funds for Mutende School and Orphanage. The completed school, located in Mutende, Zambia was constructed in a matter of weeks on a budget of £100 per sqm.
