The project area is located in Durban, one of the most important cities of South Africa. The challenge is to design a better place for workers in a big marketplace, between an old cemetery and a station. The project is developed by three scales, which have three different times of construction. In the short term workers can have a new stall to sell their products, designed with poor and local materials; in the medium term they can build themselves dorms to stay during the night; in the long term this type of “village” can be extended in other commercial areas of the city.
