The project "Integral Reconstruction of the Habitat in Guendalizaa" is an initiative of the Ixtepecano Committee for the Defense of Life and Territory and the Ixtepec Reconstruction Council, who together with the Universidad de la Tierra de Oaxaca and Comunal: Taller de Architecture have worked, since 2018, this process of comprehensive accompaniment to families for the reconstruction of their homes, taking into account the culture of the place, the use of local materials and construction systems, the complexity of living and the strengthening of the subject community through the recovery of the Guendalizaa [mutual aid in Zapotec]. The importance of making the construction manual lies in the high percentage of families that are rebuilding their homes through self-construction and self-production processes, requiring comprehensive technical and social support for the structural security of their homes.
