08 Apr Archstorming Announces Competition to Design African House for Tanzanian Family
Archstorming has launched a competition to design a home for a family in Tanzania from the Iraqw tribe. The Jorejick family live in Getamock, a small town in the north of the country. The family includes 19 people, of which 15 currently live in the house. They live in huts, and lack potable water and electricity. They have a precarious infrastructure, humid and poorly hygienic environments and a shortage of nutritious food. Diseases, especially in children, are constant.
The eldest son, Paulo (33), along with his wife Sonia, have created Un Hogar en Tanzania, a fundraising campaign to build a decent house to the family. You can now be part of the project and prove that we can help them through architecture.
Archstorming will look for designs to build a house for 15 people that will include 6 bedrooms, a living room, an outdoor and an indoor kitchen, showers and latrines, a corral and the cattle area.
The winning proposal will be built.
