The right to water: open-source project for ecovillages
H2OS is an eco-village project in Africa. Against desertification, school dropouts, emigration. It will be open-source, autonomous and sustainable.
TAMssociati has inaugurated the ‘eco-maison’, the first lot of the H2OS project, which plans construction of an eco-village in Senegal (at Keur Bakar, 200 km from Dakar) consisting of common spaces and housing modules self-supporting in energy and water in an area where desertification is inexorably spreading.
It is an open-source pilot project, replicable, adaptable and perfectible elsewhere. The H2OS architectural and technological project is conceived and developed by TAMassociati.
