And nice interview also… Please continue your research to offer housing at affordable price !
I agree 100% with Sindhuja’s point of view regarding a more sustainable way to deal with our ideals but materials facts as well…

This could be a solution for Auroville housing shortage. In fact, this could be a solution for the world’s housing shortage. Inspiring! Fantastic radio program!
Thank you all.

In different currencies the cost of this 100 square meters house is: Euro 16218. US$ 18419. Amazing ! 🙂

    Amazing indeed! I was thinking about forwarding this link to the Bill and Belinda Gates Foundation, the UN and Habitat for Humanity. But I would like you, Renu and above all Sindhuja to agree with it first. What do you think?
