Résumé
Through the design of housing in Otse, Botswana, the thesis project proposes a design that relies on the spirit of community as the driving force of development in an African village. By focusing on the household as the basic unit of human existence, the project explores rural life and day to day existence and searches for ways of using intrinsic familial values as the driving forces for development. This thesis examines the contentious issue of development, focusing on the growing disconnect between the local community and the solutions applied to local problems. It casts a light on the elusive nature of progress and questions the debatable indicators used to measure it in the context of a developing world. Questions are posed as to who is more qualified to advance development to the developing world, and who is better positioned to make judgment on the progress made in human development
