Nhafuba, Mozambique. 2011
The TIBÁ team spent 4 weeks in the jungle near some hot springs, working with a community on the reforestation of their lands and the construction of a spa to attract tourist and create a boost to the economy. Having no material store nearby, it was a bio-architectural building in its most pure form. Everything had to be made on location; hence the environmental impact was close to zero. We adapted the same local techniques: straw, stones, wood and adobe.
