CASA EN TANZANIA

texto

“Water is life, and because we have no water, life is miserable.”

—Kenya, 1997 (in Voices of the Poor, World Bank)

 

There is an indisputable fact, as an anonymous person said in 1997: water is life. And if architecture is designed to house life, it must also house water. This is where it all begins in this house. It was a huge concern to create a system that could efficiently store as much rainwater as possible through a large deck just like “an open book”. In this way, the water meets the spine of that book. Beneath this open book is where it all happens creating a place of  “crossing stories”.
