· introduction ·
Tanzania suffers from a terrible shortage of good quality and affordable housing. So dire is this shortage that the nation currently carries a 3 million housing deficit coupled with a 200.000 unit annual demand. Over seventy percent of its urban residents live in unplanned and unserviced informal settlements.

With that in mind, Archstorming is looking for a housing design to be implemented not only in Tanzania, but also in other African countries where housing is an increasing problem.

​In order to do so, the current competition will explore efficient and economic ways to build houses in Africa. The Jorejick family, located near Karatu, Tanzania, will be the firsts we will help. With your participation, we will provide them with a design for their new home. The winning proposal will be built.

· challenge ·
The Jorejick are a Tanzanian family from the tribe of the Iraqw. They live in Getamock, a small town in the north of the country. The family includes 19 people, of which 15 currently live in the house.
They live in huts, and lack potable water and electricity. They have a precarious infrastructure, humid and poorly hygienic environments and a shortage of nutritious food. Diseases, especially in children, are constant.

The eldest son, Paulo (33), along with his wife Sonia, have created Un Hogar en Tanzania, a fundraising campaign to build a decent house to the family. You can now be part of the project and prove that we can help them through architecture.

We will look for designs to build a house for 15 people that will include 6 bedrooms, a living room, an outdoor and an indoor kitchen, showers and latrines, a corral and the cattle area. Get more information about the challenge in the briefing of the competition.
