IntroductionProject 2020 : 20 Architects, 20 Latrines, for 20 Families in Year 2020 Project 2020 is a social initiative by 20 Singapore architects and friends to design and build 20 latrines for 20 families of Village Bustatrav, Svay Chek Commune, Angkor Thom District, Cambodia. This project is in collaboration with the Cambodian Community Dream Organisation, Inc. (CCDO) under the WASH program. CCDO has identified these 20 families in Siem Reap province as beneficiaries for Project 2020. The project aims to raise awareness of the sanitation issue faced by villagers in the developing country. More information can be read on the project's Give Asia webpage here.
The Site The site is located northwest of Siem Reap, Cambodia, and in the Village of Bustatrav. The houses in the village are less than basic and many lacked sanitary facilities.
20 architects, students from Cambodia and Singapore, as well as industry friends. Our director, Ar. Chu personally brought together these parties to design and build the 20 latrines personally by hand. The project was not just a design project, but also a logistics endeavour especially since it was the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
