Abstract

Monwabisi Park is an informal settlement in Cape Town, South Africa. Poor water and sanitation services in the area cause diarrheal diseases and negatively impact the quality of life. A facility was designed to expand access to clean water and toilet services in Monwabisi Park and also provide community interaction through public washing stations and gardening. The facility conserves water through waterless toilets, rainwater collection and recycling. The design is easily modified and can be replicated across Monwabisi Park.
