Fundraising Phase!

Currently we are choosing between different available projects in Panama; these range from designing the buildings for an agricultural tourism business to full scale redevelopment of a community that has been destroyed by flooding. Otherwise we are putting most of our energy into fundraising for our first research trip to Panama. The trip, which is scheduled for August 9th - 16th, will send 11 students to survey the project site and meet the community members we will be working with. During this time we will be conducting extensive research on the site's climate, landscape, and tectonics. It will also allow us to acquaint ourselves with local construction materials and methods. We will then work out preliminary design ideas and assess the community and ecological impact of our intervention.

Please help us reach our goal and make a difference!
