19 Architecture students coming from various European and Asian Universities and 3 technical professionals from Costa Rica from the Housing Development and Management – Lund University in Sweden had their field study and site visit in the housing projects of SHEC in Phase 2 and Phase 17. This field study is part of their subject on Urban Shelter Course: Architecture in Extreme Environments. It is the goal of the field study to give the foreign students the opportunity to better understand the local shelter and environmental issues and apply the learnings from the field study in viable local housing design proposals. They also made a short interview with some of the residence of Phase 2 and after that they proceeded to see the newly built 5-storey house of Phase 17. They had their last visit at SHEC office where they were given a short orientation about SHEC and its housing initiatives through a video presentation.
