Amaka – from surviving to thriving.
Amaka is a multidisciplinary project by Aalto University students exploring integrated solutions to the water issues facing the Katanga settlement in Kampala, Uganda. Through a collaborative design process informed by literature review, field investigations and community engagement, Project Amaka has compiled a suite of complementary water solutions for the settlement and created a high-level integrated conceptual plan for a small pilot area within Katanga. The team has worked to integrate Project Amaka with Emu ku'emu – a low cost modular housing concept for Katanga developed by a student team from Makerere University, Uganda. Together these projects combine to form a vision forward for Katanga and its vibrant community that is sustainable and inclusive.
