'The School of Ascension' is an off-grid rehabilitation campus for misogynists (specifically 'incels', a sect of online woman-haters). Its cut-off location on the British Territory of Ascension Island inspired an invented architectural vernacular using local materials in a 3D-printed construction process. With no way to leave the island and no internet access, clients work the land for sustenance between therapy and educational sessions. Once successfully rehabilitated, their three-month stays culminate in a ceremonial graduation.
