Cambodian Sustainable Housing Competition Entry ( Building Trust International)

Vernacular Module

Competition Description: 

In partnership with Karuna Cambodia, Habitat for Humanity & the Cambodian Society of Architects (CSA) we sought designs that provided a sustainable future for housing in the South-east Asian country. Any proposal had to keep below a budget of $2000 and deal with the yearly flooding that effects most residential areas. The winning designs could influence the way they build housing in the region. This competition is a real chance to make a difference to a large group of working Cambodians lives. We are in discussion with other charitable organisations working in the region and hope that through the project we can raise the standards and create a sustainable agenda for future development. Although the competition only asked for a house design the implications of the project are great. This competition represents a real chance to make a difference and challenge a host of issues that relate to the environment, flooding, living standards and the construction process. http://www.buildingtrustinternational.org/CSH%20brief.pdf
