Tiny House 2017

Kalbelias are part of the original tribes of nomads which came from Rajasthan before spreading across the world. Throughout the years, many government schemes have tried to make Kalbelias and Indian nomads settle down because of the negative image conveyed about non-sedentarism. 

The tiny house would become their identity and grant them access to these basic services as well as enabling them to keep moving from one place to another to find work, as per their tradition.

Kalbelias are therefore a community which would truly gain from having a movable tiny house. It would answer their needs, give them access to their rights and empower them. 

The aim of designing them a movable tiny house is to raise awareness about this community and to help them preserve their tradition of nomadism.
