I recall, HAITI was the utmost place to stay calm and relax from our hectic everyday life.
Beginning of year 2010, I have heard and seen the devastating news on TV. HAITI became an unbelievably different place. It was quite a chaos itself.
We are trying to bring order out of chaos.
To make safe and peaceful Home in Haiti, we need to brainstorm from our typical House. There is no excavation for footing or steel beam and column to hold structures.
We are proposing the structure that has space within. To construct house at the job site, you need to make the form work for one time and produce as many as you want. After that, place �쁬onolithically constructed�� precast piece on the base of house one by one. Secondly, use natural resource to complete house inside and exterior. This system will construct house flexible and expandable in many ways.
In case of natural disaster, one could stay inside of monolithic constructed piece, to avoid from any physical damages. Between two monolithically constructed pieces, it may be collapse from natural disaster but it is easy to reconstruct in any minute. This space is design to collapse easily to buffer and bring in fresh flow air to inside of house.
The purpose of our construction is that provide rigid and solid area with expandable and ventilated area to balance their mental and physical health of everyday life.
We will like to say Hello to people in Haiti.
We will like to Hear sound of laughing.
We will like to Help improve environment.
We are Hoping that Haiti will be back to paradise like before!
