Nightly Built in front of our noses

When talking about cities that ’emerge at night’. Here is an example of the buildings being constructed in front of our noses. It took them less than a week to put up a housing unit (tin shack) which contains 8 rooms and will house – if we downsize the number of people to at least 3 per room – 24 people.

This is yet another example of why it is necessary to have community members trained in mapping techniques – to keep up with the ever changing slum.

Below is half a year old satellite image which shows the same building but without a structure on top.
