The team is constructing a technical manual that provides the basics regarding construction materials and relative techniques for auto-construction. The objective is to promote culture in architectural planning in areas in which our association operates: India, Kenya, South Africa and Ecuador. The manual provides the basics on construction materials and relevant construction techniques.
At the moment, four volunteers (Olga, Marilisa, Cat, Negar) are working on this project, each of them developing a section of the manual detailing the possible uses of different locally found materials: wood, bamboo, plastics, and fabric, as well as rudimentary site planning and minimum standards in architecture.
