Designed by a United States architectural firm Kurani, the Riverbend School planned for the outskirts of Chennai, India, will look more like a village than a set of traditional classrooms. The founders of the school are entrepreneurs. They point out that many of the jobs of the future have not been invented yet, something the current education system has yet to acknowledge.
