The first of its kind smart school structure designed by the world-renowned architect Ms. ZahaHadid (the late) will be set up in Islamabad to provide free education and life skills to out-of-school children. The structure is gifted to Pakistan by Education Above All (EAA), a Doha-based foundation, which in collaboration with Alight Pakistan is funding the largest primary education initiative in the country aimed at educating one million children.
As a giant leap to revolutionize the educational infrastructure, Alight Pakistan and Future Development Holdings have collaborated to showcase the first innovative and energy-efficient school structure in the Capital Smart City on a land designated as “Community Development Hub.” Besides the establishment of school which embodies the legendary architect’s signature design, the Community Development Hub will include a community clinic, a skill development & job placement centre and a playground.
