A catalogue of typical house plans and photos prepared by the architects Gaëlle Bois Soulier and Laure Cornet, during their study tour in Burkina Faso. The document was distributed to the VN builders during their meeting in October 2007, as an aid both for construction and for showing to their clients. The examples shown can be modified and adapted to suit clients’ needs. The document mainly consists of drawings and photos, with minimal text (in French).
