Here is a chance for a community to build another. Archstorming is calling for proposals to design a house for the Jorejick Family. The site or the plot of land is owned by the Jorejick family and located in Getamock, in the Karatu District, north of Tanzania. The closest city Karatu is 2 hours of driving and has a population of 26,617. Lake Manyara is in proximity of the site. The region attracts plentiful tourism funneled by Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. Getamock, where the house is to be designed, has a community of 500 people, all from the tribe of the Iraqw and speaking Iraqw as well as Swahili. More details on the competition are available here.
