Real Gold at the End of the Rainbow
Construction is well under way in San Pedro Apóstol, Mexico where local architects, artists, teachers and natural builders Joao Caeiro and Fulvio Capurso are working with a team of students and community members to design and construct a new sports center. Funded by a GAMECHANGERS microgrant, the rural sports center will be a welcomed hub for commerce, entertainment, sport and recreation.
Through skills training and workshops, the design team is training builders in indigenous and natural building materials and methods -- using bamboo, adobe, and compressed earth -- while also providing the technical guidance to learn from traditional methods in innovative ways.
We love it.
