TU Delft’s Bambú Social is an educational and construction project with the goal of sharing knowledge and expertise about the use of local resources for sustainable and affordable social housing. In El Rama, BAMBÚ SOCIAL set up a ‘Sustainable Construction’ course, together with the local university and the municipality, to create a sustainable and dignified alternative to social housing. This building method can be practiced in a completely local manner, with the integration of a decentralized, low-tech, natural water purification and storage system in order to provide clean drinking water for the inhabitants of the house. The constructed model house is the base for the design of an affordable social home, and the manual – ‘Un manual de construcción sostenible’,  – explains the entire process with step by step drawings. The model house has been donated to the local university and currently functions as a library, but the knowledge shared can help the community for a lifetime.
