The concept of the $300 House Project is based on the 2.5 billion people that make up the bottom of the socioeconomic pyramid. Govindarajan and Sarkar propose basic necessities for surviving in the modern world, from mosquito nets and water filters to solar panels and a tablet PC.
You are invited to put your design skills to the test through a Jovoto competition which is now open for design submissions. A $10,000 prize and a 2-week prototyping workshop with Common is set up for the winner.
I have attached three pictures of my favorite submissions so far. If you are a tiny house designer and want to get involved in this competition join now.
