  TI KAY LA'   An anti-seismic housing complex for 30 haitian kids.    PDF    Visit website    Between 2014 and 2015, right after graduating, I was invited to Anse-à-Pitres, a small village in the Sur Este department of Haiti, to build a housing complex for Ayitimoun Yo, an N.G.O. that helps local street children.     A meeting with the N.G.O founders fostered the idea of designing an anti-seismic building for the children, that could also serve as a resource (haven) to help them feel welcome and part of a family again. The N.G.O wanted a space that would be easy to control, in which the children could sleep and carry out their daily activities.  The children, on the other hand, would need different areas; an indoor space to share with their housemates; a veranda to do their homework and spend time with their close friends; a lateral big open space to share with all the others. This subdivision is important considering the fact that there are children of different age and background.    Design team   Bonaventura Visconti di Modrone   Location  Anse-à-Pitres, Sur Este, Haiti   Typology  Housing complex   Images   Marco Cappelletti
