Design Indaba 08: the first sand-bag house designed by Cape Town architects MMA is taking shape (see earlier post).
The house, which has a total budget of just 65,000 Rand (£4,300/$8,600), is one of ten houses being built to house former shack dwellers.
10x10 aims to develop new affordable housing typologies by pairing international designers with South African architects.
A total of 100 houses by ten different design teams will be built at Freedom Park in Cape Town.
Women from Freedom Park are building the houses.
