::CASE STUDIO:: {Community Architects for Shelter and Environment}

Designing with simple equipment.

Each family was given a card grid 1m=1inch of their plots. Furniture layouts were formulated from scaled templates of beds, toilets, stairs etc. The process identified particular use and function of their plans. The grids helped people to understand how much space they needed for each function. Sticking furniture onto grid paper was also a fun process for the people. The activity stimulated imaginations and helped them add ideas to the design. The tools helped people to understand the basic elements of building, scale and space that addressed function and their life style. We collected the peoples designs, adjusted, drafted them as a building drawing and modified until people were satisfied.
