Hana spent a year at the Rural Studio in Alabama designing and building a prototype home for local families living in poverty and trapped in squalid housing. The budget was set by a means-tested government loan programme which was capped at $20,000 for those on the lowest incomes.

The resulting design was a highly efficient yet generous structure, responsive to local culture, using the available basic skills and materials, and as energy-efficient as possible. It cost just over $12,000 in materials, leaving the rest for labour and profit.
