Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP)

HICAP (Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP))
This research provides design/build services to a village in North India, where, due to chronic drought caused by climate change, an entire community is moving to a new site. Faculty work with villagers through community design charettes to help envision this process and plan with digital tools. In addition to drafting master plan documentation and various community land infrastructure, locals are engaged to construct new prototypes on the community space in the new village.
