Living Green Community

  • Year2023
The aim of the project is to design a floating off-grid community in Somalia using bamboo. An affordable and biobased community.

Somalia is currently experiencing a drought, and the rising sea levels pose a threat to the livelihoods of coastal communities, especially in southern Somalia. In order to tackle these challenges, the population needs to adapt and sometimes revert to historical strategies. For example, they construct platforms for bush farming and raise small livestock. Additionally, a floating school has been established to ensure that children can continue their education despite isolation caused by the unusable infrastructure.
