Description

Starting from the basis of the primitive hut and using local materials, I have created a spatial and structural prototype of dwelling that responds to the present needs of the poor people in the world, with a local study of Romania's rural society.

   By studying the main needs of the poor rural society from Romania's villages and the main features of the traditional dwelling, I have created a prototype of space and structure that uses local materials and low technologies, creating a replicable, low cost and sustainable model of housing, based on the twisted metaphor of the primitive hut.  The total cost of my design proposal is up to 300 $ and can become a prototype of dwelling all over the world.
