Part I Architecture student at University of Westminster
I am interested in low-cost, self-help and humanitarian architecture,
I would like to work as a volunteer to contribute and have a better understanding of these practices through the investigation of their basic guidelines for design. I would also like to research the value of self-help housing for low income households and communities that can be creative but practical too; while involving people in the design and construction from vernacular traditions, and using local/available materials that are climate responsive.
