The Building Centre Movement
a best practice identified by the UN-Habitat, is a significant initiative with tremendous potential to provide intervention contributing towards sustainable housing and improving the quality of life of the citizens.
The Design options –
promoted by the Building Centres
The design of shelter appropriate for varying geo-climatological environments using cost effective yet environmentally sustainable building materials and technologies besides providing for disaster resistant construction poses a daunting challenge. Although the industrialization has brought in mechanized and rapid construction practices, these are limited to the large scale top of the line projects for the affluent, with the majority of construction activity based on age old techniques and norms which have long out-lived their versatility. There is a need for the necessary refinement and application of innovation and appropriate inputs to the traditional construction practices.
This calls for a people-oriented bottom-up approach striking the right and sustainable balance between the intermediate, vernacular and innovative technologies towards optimizing the construction costs.
