1490 (10") Asientamento Rural y Sostenible en Nicaragua. Category 03: Affordable Housing
Giovanna Saporiti: Italy
This project was born from the desire to go deeper into a sustainable architecture with materials that can be gathered on-site and built easily by the people who are going to live in the house. This house is designed for the tropical regions of Nicaragua and makes use not only of local bamboo, but of adobe blocks, vegetable fibers, and a foundation of tires filled with stones.
