Enpower the squatcity community with modern building design tools

Strengths: Architectural and engineering practise codes are often complex and require a high level of expertise to be implemented. This manual will allow individuals to understand all the building processes and help small local enterprises to produce the building elements following simple design recommendations. Ultimately this manual will guide organic urban growth powered by the squatcity community and allow ruse of materials and built space.

Difficulties: The scheme proposed only facilitates the building of single story dwellings of dimensions limited by local production of the pre-fabricated building elements. More complex or multi-storey buildings would not be covered by the recommendations of the final design manual.
