Transfused Architecture: Ascent Of A Developing World, 2018 Kennesaw State University
Transfused Architecture: Ascent Of A Developing World, Sandy Ferrier
Bachelor of Architecture Theses - 5th Year
Because there is a lack of adequate health care facilities in developing countries, there is a substantial amount of unrealized, optimal health gains and effective, architectural interventions which are not fully realized. With 80% of its population living below the world poverty line, Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere. The United Nations Development Program’s 2014 report shows the extents of poverty at 75% mainly in the rural areas of Haiti. Only 25% of households benefit from adequate sanitation, thus people become more susceptible to infections and diseases. Reoccurring natural catastrophes have also dented the ...
