Kay Anj Village Advances

Process—————21 August 2012

Studio Twenty Seven Architecture Principal Todd Ray just returned from a trip to Haiti. Todd was assisting the non-profit organization Helping Haitian Angels survey the location for a new orphanage village. The village, known as Kay Anj (see News from January 2012), will be located near Debout in the northern region of Haiti, about forty minutes east of Cap Haitien.

The survey helped locate the primary well and septic site infrastructure, as well as the boundaries of the village. Potential contractors were interviewed and construction is scheduled to break ground in early October. Todd’s schedule was tight, but he still found opportunities to document his trip. The accompanying images are selected watercolors from his sketchbook.
