Prototype primary schools realized with UNESCO assistance in Mauritania:

The UNESCO architects in Dakar, with the Mauritanian school building unit, developed two prototypes of primary classrooms. Firstly two classrooms were constructed at Nouakchott to test the possibilities of using gypsum (locally extracted and processed) as building material. Secondly a set of six classrooms was built at Diaguili, a large river front village. The second prototype, inspired by the building system for the Bakel project, was developed to test the possibility of co-financing between a local community and a central source.
