The Konbit Shelter Project | Disaster-Resistant Homes

We all remember the horrible 2010 earthquake that took place in Haiti:

The continued outpouring of help is tremendous and one company in particular is working to make the lives of the many families affected better through the Konbit Shelter Project — creating disaster resistant  homes and community spaces.

Konbit Shelter is a sustainable building project with the objective of sharing knowledge and resources through the creation of homes and community spaces in post earthquake Haiti. We are a group of artists, builders, architects, and engineers, who, after the January 2010 earthquake, asked ourselves how we could use our skills and resources to directly assist another community in a time of crisis.

Looking at the images of the homes they are building I have to say they look like something out of a fantasy land… they are simply beautiful. Here are some images let me know your thoughts:
