Article Title

Panama City Pit


Our project is located in the village of Coclecito, Panama. Here we have proposed to relocate a village into a 1850’ x 1500’ by 400 deep mining pit that has been left behind by the mining company. Our thought is that with the terries left in the mine we can use them to create terries farming in which it can provide sustainable life to the people. With this the building would be set on stable volcanic rock, taking advantage of regional geology. We tend to use a concrete mixture with volcanic rock to create most of the structure.
