Scenario 2: Nepal, Laprak Village, Alpine Climate

The critical reflection of what has been done and what could have been done, has been the point of departure. After 2015 Earthquake, so called model houses with rigid plans and modern materials are being constructed. This has not only disturbed the vernacular essence but also disregarded the ecological, cultural and economic aspects of rural Nepal.

Therefore, instead of new technology in the name of innovation, our design uses the situated construction knowledge in an efficient way.  The proposed plans respond to local environment and allow the daily activities.  Also, the modular system helps for the rapid reconstruction of houses.
