Connecting people, culture and nature
& Lavadero« back to SAVE THE CHILDREN
Providencia- Cuidad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico 1996
The first building constructed on the Save the Children site was a small house built for Emiliano Lopez, his wife Juanita and their children. The walls were built from straw-clay blocks and utilized pallets for much of the roof. Emiliano was in charge of the overall construction of the office building so it served as a location for he and his family to live during the duration of the project.
A fun addition to the house was an outdoor laundry area, known as the “lavadero,” built by the attendees to one of the workshops that we held in Mexico. A clay oven, Quebec style, was also built as part of this complex.
