“The starting constraints for this project were quite complex: absolute prohibition of using cement and foundations, due to the prohibition for the Palestinians of non-temporary artifacts in the area C of the West Bank; velocity and simplicity in the construction; minimum costs and local non-skilled manpower. From these constraints came up a project that brings together the rapid and simple construction with a high-level of comfort conditions. The walls made of tires fulfilled with earth and the roof made with sandwich panels supported by wooden beams, were built in just two weeks. All the works have been carried out by manpower from the local community, under the technical direction of ARCò. ”
