Hugo Wainshtok supplied the first photos of prefabricated housing that have stood approximately thirty years in the Caribbean area. And in the September 9, 2021 morning news from Cuba we can read of homes damaged by hurricanes;
The wait has been too long for thousands of victims in Pinar del Río - the province hardest hit by hurricanes - who still have no solution to their biggest problem: housing, which is also a primary social problem for Cuba.
We began this exercise with concern for the Haitian earthquake emergency. Already in one Caribbean area we see housing is a major concern in the area's extremes of scientifically advanced Cuba alongside poor deprived Haiti. Looking further we can see housing and other necessities of life are the primary social problem world-wide.
The first view is from Hugo Wainshtok and the second is from Paul Nedwell presenting the work of John Mannus. At the very bottom I included a jig that can be disassembled so that all parts fit in the largest number one jig, which has removable wheels so the jig can be pushed or pulled to a new location.
Please note that when I was in Cuba I was invited into eight or ten small houses similar in size to those pictured above left. I enjoyed animated conversations with healthy fun Cuban people living well in balance with Earth.
