City of Cape Town Water and Sanitation Department
Inadequate sanitation takes the lives of hundreds of residents in informal settlements every year in Cape Town, South Africa. Our initiative resulted in the development of a communal water facility that addresses issues pertaining to this matter. Through direct interaction with community members, city officials, and thorough field observation, a facility was designed to alleviate unhealthy living conditions through a peri-urban upgrading process that promotes cost effectiveness, sustainability, and ecologically friendly principles.
