Dalai Lama

On the occasion of the visit by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, the School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo, New York State, celebrated the local and global achievements of the Druk Padma Karpo School with an exhibition and a commemorative book titled ˜Building Culture"

In the book, Brian Carter (Professor of Architecture and Dean of the School) states, "This is a school built around an idea that seeks to provide children with appreciations and understandings of the wisdom of the past that are integral with new attitudes and skills for the future. The school is an outstanding example of a truly sustainable design.
