Museum of Simple Technology, Madras, India
Built by local basket-makers, making use of bamboo and aluminum foil. The cost of 1 m² roof surface was only 2 USD. This museum was built by the Communication Center (UNU) exhibiting the manuals as wall-journals. The building itself was a prototype for self-builders’ techniques.
