Rose Town

Steve has worked on two charrettes sponsored by the Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment in Rose Town, a desperately poor neighborhood in Kingston, Jamaica. He developed the “wet appliance,” a tiny house core which could be craned into place quickly, allowing residents to build out the rest of their houses over time.  He also developed a highly innovative “proverb code,” which was adopted by the people in a most surprising way.
