The Rajkumari Ratnavati Girl’s School: Look, how this school in Jaisalmer stands different!

 Rajkumari Ratnavati Girls’ School, situated in the centre of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan, speaks of architectural marvel as it doesn’t require ACs even at a time when the temperature outside touches 50 degree Celsius.

Built in an oval-shaped structure, the school blends with the desert landscape with the beautiful Jali wall at the roofs and solar installations ensuring that sustainable principles are followed at length.

Made of yellow sandstone, it speaks the story of sustainability as the students can study and play in the protected courtyard here without worrying about the extreme weather outside.

The building is designed by Diana Kellogg Architects and is funded by CITTA, an international non-profit organisation founded by Michael Daube, to bring in local communities to send their girls to school. 

It will also encourage craftspeople to impart skills such as weaving and printing to the students’ mothers and aunts, and make it a marketplace to exhibit and sell their goods.
