Project Amaka took place between January 2020 and May 2020. The process consisted of main three stages: research, research synthesis and concept development. The main events of the project has been highlighted in the timeline below.
Through our early collaboration with the MAK student team, we established our main objectives for our project. Besides designing water solutions to supplement MAK team’s housing design, we aimed at providing complementary holistic support to their project. This encompassed gathering and analysing input from the Katanga residents on how they envision their living in the future is like, in terms of housing, water and public services. The findings and insights supported Emu ku'emu’s further architectural development and Project Amaka’s conceptual design for WASH solutions.
