New housing for Haiti

  • Comment

To tie in with a prototype housing expo in October, the Haitian government has launched a competition to help with the rebuilding programme in Haiti

Designers, architects, contractors, consultants and suppliers are encouraged to get involved with the development of alternative forms of permanent housing. Architect John McAslan is closely involved with the expo, and with Arup has already come up with a fast-build prototype home which costs only £3K.  The expo will serve as a testing ground for designs with an exemplar housing settlement to follow shortly after.
