During the reconnaissance trip after the earthquake in July 2015, more than fifty houses were visited in different parts of Bhimphedi to study the relationship between their damage degree and their construction typology. These studies, along with the general proposal for action, were reflected in the Identification Trip Report del Viatge. The program was structured in giving: social, economic and technical support.
The latter provided a number of technical improvements to traditional architecture, such as the need to add diagonal reinforcements or to bind the walls horizontally and vertically. Later, these improvements were tested during the prototypes’ construction and were finally applied and perfected in the houses’ construction.
