The Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit (SUDU), which emerged out of a summer workshop in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is a new, sustainable housing alternative that can be self-constructed with minimal technical ability, low start-up costs, and local materials (such as soil). This publication documents the building process in two parts: The first part narratively records the construction process itself while providing historical and technical context. The second part functions as a manual, providing a detailed list of tools, materials, and step-by-step instructions that can be used by readers to carry out their own SUDU project.
