|Re-building a home at Kaaule village, Nuwakot, Nepal|
Along with this architects and planners are thinking of low cost prototypes which will be better equipped to handle earthquakes and these will form the bulk of the permanent housing in the villages.
Ashish Sharan Lal is a conservation architect who visited Kaaule and Bhangeri villages one month after the earthquake to see for himself the damage and plan for the future.
In this video shot at Kaaule village, Sharan shares his thoughts on re building the village.
I also quite liked the design of the houses using earthbags which has already been used in Nepal.
Do visit http://www.naturalbuildingblog.com/finished-earthbag-school-in-nepal/ which describes how to make these buildings in details.
