Laurie Baker-The father of low cost architecture of India
I'm a Habitat for Humanity Int'l (non-profit affordable-housing homebuilder) volunteer in the U.S., and I'm curious what Laurie Baker followers would make of his modern, more commercial "descendants" -- those doing low-cost, high-efficiency housing for a profit. I'm thinking, specifically, of Moladi in South Africa, which employs a re-usable plastic formwork; there's little "cultural life" to the product, but as pure housing, it seems reasonable. More at:
