Architecture for people affected by natural disasters.

The focused site is located in the town of Lindi and shows all characteristics of an urban settlement quarter in a city, adjacent the Indian ocean and river delta.
From the first step on, it is the beginning of the rebuilding for an individual, sustainable shelter for each household, lost in the history of a natural hazard.
Relicts and ruins of the former home structures are being reused, recycled and rebuild.
Nothing is waste. No material, no construction, no human work.
Everything is settled on each other.
New Living Space – From a short-term help to a long-term effect.
Ecological  I  economical  I  cultural  I  energy efficient

The combination of 20- 30 households in this phase, can evoke more energy efficient system structure and is considered in urban planning at all time. The sustainable shelter of the first weeks – the nucleus, has become a house, a home as part of a potential, future settlement of LINDI.
