Brainstorming in Ecuador

 Peter Arndt from the Clay House Project in Namibia, visited Ecuador in December 2003, where he met with John Vargas, who builds the ECUAtevi tile-making machines. One of the results of this brainstorming was a new mechanism to lock the frame, which locks in place automatically and saves time and effort for the user. It will be tested under intense production conditions for six months at the Ecomaterials factory in Riobamba. Later, this improvement will be available to MCR producers and workshops around the world.
