The Paper Log House used as local hospital (November, 2018)


For the people who lost their homes due ti the Gujarat Earthquake in 2001, the Paper Log House was redesigned to meet the local circumstances. What makes the India’s log house unique is the foundation and the roof. Rubble from destroyed building was used for the foundation topped with a traditionalmud floor. For the roof, split bamboo was applied to the rib vaults and whole bamboo to the ridge beams, covered by two mats of woven bamboo sandwichinga plastic tarp.
