AUGUST 8TH, 2019 - CONSTRUCTION START IN MOZAMBIQUE

Supertecture and greenhelmets have finally arrived in mozambique to start building the 7m² prototype house. Please enjoy our emergency-architecture-student's short introduction to the foreseen tiny-house design here

Thank you for supporting our project: www.betterplace.org/de/projects/71662

JULY 14TH, 2019 - SUPERTECTURE AND GREENHELMETS IN MOSAMBIQUE

Together with our friends from the "greenhelmets" we have been researching the destructions of cyclon "Idai" and most suitable places to start our reconstruction work. Meanwhile supertecture and the students from Augsburg's faculty of architecture have designed the small and smart 7m² home. In early august we will start building our first prototype tiny-house for teachers in the village of "Sovim".

Later on greenhelmets are going to rebuild the house many times for local families.

Here is your chance to support our project: www.betterplace.org/p71662

JUNE 1ST, 2019 - RECONSTRUCTION IN MOZAMBIQUE

During our visit in mozambique greenhelmets and supertecture decided to rebuild the totally destroyed primary school of "Sovim" village and some of the attached teacher houses. Storm and rain have destroyed all former school buildings in Sovim, so that students currently have to be teached in the shade of a tree.

Like the school of Sovim, 9 comparable other villages in the neighborhood are equally suffering from the destruction of their school buildings.

If we would come up with a suitable design for classrooms, teacher houses and family homes, it could be applied in many villages troughout the whole region. Thats why we are intensively working on ideas for some smart low cost building-prototypes with students from the faculty of architecture in Augsburg.

Good schools for a good education are very much needed: analphabetisation in the village's district "Búzi" is concerning two-thirds of the local population. Some classes of the primary school in Sovim count more than 80 students. By rebuilding teacher houses we will further conceptualize how to even enable new and resistant private homes for the 300 families of Sovim and neighboring villages later.

MAY 17TH, 2019 - SUPERTECTURE IN MOZAMBIQUE

supertecture, greenhelmets and a representative of our students from the faculty of architecture in Augsburg are visiting the regions that have been most affected by wind and water from cyclone "Idai". Thousands of families in mozambique (considered to be among the world's less wealthy countries) have lost their homes in this heavy storm and it's following flood. 

While searching a suitable community to start our reconstruction project we continue to plan and design a simple and affordable prototype house that can be build for many homeless victims of the storm.

MAY 3RD, 2019 - HOME FOR MOSAMBIQUE FAMILIES

Together with architecture students of the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg we are designing and building the first of many storm and flood proofed homes for mozambique's families in need. Support our work: www.betterplace.org/p70048

NOVEMBER 25TH, 2018 - NEW HOME FOR TEAM SUPERTECTURE IN NEPAL

Thanks to the family of Mrs. Putali, a local farmer from Dhoksan village, our team in Nepal has got a new place to stay: a fifty years old traditional country-house made from rocks and soil.

With some other rocks from Putali's garden (remaining from the 2015 earthquake) and local earth from her cornfield we could built a pretty cozy extra living room now without purchasing any new material. It features the villages first fireplace with chimney (donated bricks), old windows for the obligatory himalaya-panoramic-sunrise-view and a beer-bottle-wall for atmospheric sunset-light.

NOVEMBER 15TH, 2018 - TEAM SUPERTECTURE ARRIVED IN NEPAL

Our five students arrived in Dhoksan and were welcomed in the traditional ceremony.

Thank you Dhoksan for a very nice welcome - We are ready to work!

NOVEMBER 9TH, 2018 - PROJECT LAUNCH

In november a team of six architects is starting to build our first community lodge in Nepal's mountain-village Dhoksan. Each one of the six fantastic architects designs and builds a unique room (house) from either traditional, local, recycled or "earthquake"-materials. All rooms will be ensambled to create an dense architectural firework of typical and yet never-seen-before nepalese building approaches.

OCTOBER 2018 - POWER TO THE PEOPLE

This week we founded our first social and charitable hotel cooperative in Nepal. More than 600 residents of Dhoksan will own and manage the regions's most adventurous himalaya lodge. Special thanks goes to our close friends Shankar and Sukuman, who dedicate a piece of their grandfather's valuable potato-land in order to make this unique community-hotel-dream come true. Thank you!

We further warmly welcome Mr. Paban Waiba as the cooperative's first chairman. Let's make Dhoksan great again!

SUMMER 2018 - BUILDING START IN NEPAL
We are building four new class-rooms for the Shila Devi School in Dhoksan / Nepal.
Together with the school's parents, it's board, the "Patrizia Children Foundation" and students from Augsburg and Munich we came up with four individual designs for each and every single building. In love with Nepal's unlimited building materials (such as earthquake leftovers or the great number of natural ressources) our small school extension will become the region's biggest building material exposition.
