@ VOL 3 ON JUL 07, 2015

“By fundamentals, I’m talking about plumbing; making sure people can go to the toilet and wash themselves safely… many people around the world and around our nation do not have access to running water or toilets for example. This lack of access has a direct affect on people’s health and therefor their lifespans. ”

In Architecture and the Poo Story from PechaKucha Night Broome’s 3rd Volume speaker Jessica Black talks about humanity’s favorite taboo, or, in specific, how to flush it away. Watch as she discusses different ways to break down barriers and hierarchies during remote, cross-cultural architecture projects.
