Plans for the housing project (Photographer: Eric)Transit lounge is a new temporary housing project for newcomers and Aurovillians who are forced to house sit and move from place to place looking for accommodation facilities,thus this project will fulfill their housing needs. This consists of basic dis-mountable houses which will be made from natural materials obtained from local villages environment with compost toilets. However, the houses will cost around a lakh or two,which may be affordable to everyone. In this case the housing problem in Auroville will be solved. "I call upon newcomers and Aurovillians to participate in this enthusiastic project," says Manu. Apparently it is expected that about 30 houses will be built just for the start and more in the future, though there hasn't been much response from both newcomers and Aurovilians.
