THE ARCHITECT IN THE COMMUNITY PROGRAMME, CUBA

Abstract
By : Diane Diacon

 
Established as a pilot programme in 1994, the Architect in the Community Programme now covers the whole of Cuba, providing affordable technical support to households who are building or renovating their homes on a self-help basis. The programme is self-funding and has to date been used by over 500,000 households. The participative design approach that it uses provides households with skills and confidence as well as better living conditions. It has an international reputation for its work and the experience has been transferred to other countries in Latin America and beyond.
