Bholu 14 site is situated in an informal settlement 8km away from the Gandhi Ashram in an area called Sabarmati. The particular challenge with this site is the land has been used in the past as a dumping ground for the community which presents us with difficult soil conditions. Due to the soil condition it is preferable to use lightweight construction, which is not only a structurally logical approach, but also allows for the structure to be dismantled and re-used elsewhere in the event the site is reclaimed by the government in years to come. Bamboo was the primary construction material used in the building, for it's sustainability and readily available in the city.
