Adobe for Women

One cannot mention Community based/Humanitarian design without talking about Architecture for Humanity.  Was reading their recent newsletter and as I followed the different links, it led me to “Adobe for Women“.

Adobe for Women is a non-profit association, recently founded (although there was a previous project done in 1990), that uses adobe brick construction techniques to help women build sustainable homes in Oaxaca, Mexico. Below are some images of construction, plans and sections, which can be found in The Open Architecture Network.
