Building Communities Initiative (BCI) aims to address the dire global housing shortage in emerging nations, giving rise to large, insanitary, unsafe slum developments.
BCI (Building Communities Initiative) is an organisation conceived in Western Australia with a global reach to create multi-generational change to countless families.
The BCI system features innovative lightweight concrete prefabricated system. The houses and associated commercial buildings will be provided together with off-grid sustainable services; renewable (solar) electricity, clean water (rainwater harvesting and filtration), internal roads, closed-loop waste management systems and urban agriculture, building resilient, inclusive, self-sustaining communities, boosting local food production, reducing carbon emissions and mitigating the effects of climate change. BCI has a mandate to provide a minimum of 100,000 quality and affordable homes across 100 communities every year, from order to occupancy at the lowest possible cost to the people of Emerging nations, at a scale and pace that will have an accelerated contribution to the economic development of countries that collaborate with this initiative. Ultimately, local manufacturing hubs will be set up in host country to create employment and provide skills and training.
M-Ofis Architects was established as an Architecture Design Office on 1997, and since then, pioneered by Sinan Timocin and Serkan Igdelipinar, numerous architectural projects and buildings have been accomplished.
M-Ofis Architects has internalized a basic principle of representing the buildings’ bond with its surrounding, climate and the cultural values by creating a simple and modern architectural design concept. At the same time, the aim is to design sustainable architectural work of arts in which function and aesthetics are united, as well as designing buildings that has positive contribution to the environment on which they are located.
