RecoCity LeapFrog:

Inspired by the architecture of birds & bees, the ingenuity of the urban poor & architecture of the past, this RecoPlus project can transform slums into safe, healthy dynamic & happy self-help villages. Vacant land is reused. Idle resources are mobilized. Existing infrastructure is optimized. The homeless are housed. Shelter becomes home. Tenure is secured. Micro credit generates work & business. Food is grown. Ingenuity is recognized, rewarded, built upon, replicated & demonstrated. Needs & the right to decent housing are met. Lives are elevated.

Meat & skin are added on the bones of a city in a cost effective & post-consumer manner, for a pragmatic new paradigm integrating planning, design, building, recycling & regeneration.
