We are Architects from Jaipur (Rajasthan) , INDIA
By our knowledge we want to create a Small Toilet Space which will be cost effective and accessible to women's as well as Men's . Some 70 percent of households in India don’t have access to toilets, whether in rural areas or urban slums.
Slums of Jaipur are filled with toxic materials and are unsafe for people to live, most of the people still defecate in the open.
Scrap materials are available in huge quality and many architects from around the world are designing home by using scrap materials.
We want to help the people by providing a toilet space, using reused materials we can create a toilet space which will be low cost and effective in slum and village areas .
This project will come under clean India campaign and help our P.M to achieve the dream of clean and green India.
Why Reused & Recycled Materials?
It will help in 2 ways.
1. Low cost of construction
2. Not harming the environment.
Many Pvc pipe, Water Closets, G.I. Pipes go waste after they are used once we can use them again to create a space of the people
2 Prototype of toilet are in Designing process but most of the work will be done on site on the availability of materials.
Dry Compost toilets.
This will be movable toilet it can be fixed anywhere in slum area or village no need for water in Toilets and the left residue can be used as a compost.
This is fixed toilet and can be fixed without much work it will be connected to a water pipe and left overs are collected.
Previously we have worked on Recycled and Reused materials to create many art installations in Jaipur, Now we have chance to give something to society. Help us achieve our dream of Recycled Toilets.
The mission of Our Team is to offer architectural planning and design for underprivileged groups. Often such groups include women, children or young people whose opportunities for participation in society are limited. Improving the status of women in particular has proved to be an efficient way of supporting community development. Participatory planning empowers its target groups to influence the development of their own environment, and the sense of proprietorship this creates is an important precondition for the successful completion of development projects.
In addition to cultural sustainability, WE also seeks to create ecologically sustainable architecture. The use of renewable energy sources, recycling, the utilisation of local materials and local skills are among the pillars of our planning philosophy.
