MODULAR HOUSING IN HAITI
Considering last year's devastating earthquake, the implications of Haiti's architectural restoration are being carefully considered. One firm offering a sustainable option is Miami's NC-office, who's modular housing model, very similar to traditional/feudal Japanese housing, has garnered the attention of investors. The proposed houses are 8 ft x 8 ft modules with a room as each module. The inside area is divided by a bathroom and kitchen core then a sleeping quarter and, lastly, a living and dining area. The "L" shape of the housing models allow them to be repeated, thus rendering them space-friendly in small communities.
