To address the need of proper housing in some rural areas, government and NGOs have mostly relied on building concrete houses. Although it can be viewed as an efficient solution in the short term, it may not be suitable for all villages. In villages where temperatures can be extreme, concrete houses are very difficult to live in.
As part of this project, the international student worked with civil engineering students to propose innovative building solutions with inclusive designs which are strong, safe, healthy but also economically viable. The long term objective is to apply this at large scale in other villages.As per the study carried out, Rammed Earth was identified and a primary design was proposed.
