My favorite entry in the competition of the House of $300
If you were never homeless or have push step of the poor in the developing world, you probably never existed, how to build a House for almost no money at all much thought. But that’s just a competition only wrapped housing developers asked to try. Finally it is only where the greatest need for affordable housing.
About two billion people in poor poverty Ingersol live with the world around concepts and designs for a home, which can be built for less than $300 RAND challenged.

The lower block of land could be modified height for, that not all the houses exactly same appearance.
At the top of the soil block is a frame with components of usable wood. Thus cross breezes would use houses. The roof is corrugated metal, chosen for their availability, and reliability. The roof is a simple shed roof that the warm air, the inclination to follow up and out “.”
Blocks of the country were a very hard kind of Adobe bricks by the compression of the country within a form, but without using heat. They could also in be used a stove, sleeping and other furniture shaped to create platform.
Each of these small units could be together in different ways in the form of small communities, fit, to create a sense of belonging, the privacy and security for every family.
An important aspect of life – even for the poorest, is their livelihood.Is one of the few that takes into account this fact in the development of design. Here, the outer walls of the cluster can only be used, to sell small shops were to create a little shadow.
