 Project objective

'Unfortunately, natural disasters exist and will continue to exist in our environment. Recently, they have occurred in many areas (Sumatra-Andaman 2004 earthquake-tsunami, with 1 million people left homeless; an earthquake in Concepcion, Chile, 2010, with half a million homes destroyed and another million and a half damaged houses or the recent Nepal earthquake of 2015, with more than 130,000 houses destroyed and another 86,000 damaged). In 2015, 60 million people were displaced because of armed conflicts, climate change or natural disasters. Therefore, Huritrabe wants to develop a technology, House Printing (HoP), aimed at the construction of ephemeral houses in disaster areas through additive manufacturing that uses vernacular materials recycled 'in situ'. The idea arose from reproducing the collaborative work systems that exist in nature itself, such as swarms of bees, or ant colonies. Collaborative work obtains better results and allows the solution of problems of scale, impossible to crack in any other way, like in the cases of the Pyramids, Stonehenge, anthills or hives. The other sources of inspiration have been the primitive and more elemental constructions made by ancient cultures such as the Chilean Mapuche ruca, the Eskimo igloo or the simple but robust rammed earth constructions, resistant to adverse weather, earthquakes, as well as ecological and sustainable.'

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HOP" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
