The AuraKraho Inspired Octagonal House and Master Plan
The AuraKraho mini-documentary
This habitat project is inspired by the Kraho indigenous who live in circular villages in the State of Tocantins in the North of Brazil. The Kraho tribe build their villages (of which there are many) in the form of circles. This project applies a holistic cultivation system to their common circular village layout in order to produce an abundance of food, fuel and fiber for the local Kraho village network population. Note that this version shows the pasture land on a non-permiter circular belt (the second from last circular). This is one possible configuration, however, in general, pasture land is the final perimeter circular belt. Of note, this is a low-technology and low-population density habitat. There are many different configurations of habitat in community with a spectrum of technology uses and population densities.
