Occasional Talk with Lou Pugliese

The Twa Wòch (Tw) Project

To foster an effective learning environment a human centered design framework must be employed in order to address the fundamental needs for primary school design in Haiti. Careful consideration must be given to local climate, building materials, ecological conditions, and hurricane and earthquake criteria. Comprehensive discovery of human factors such as tropical climate in a school setting, geography and unique local culture are key first steps in developing a design that will hopefully have a more dramatic improvement in the future.
