The idea of this project was inspired by a research carried out in the Netherlands in 2017. We tried applying the same principle on which these machines were based, to an environment like Thar where people are very used to performing labour & intensive work. Being able to spike motivation in the people of Thar is what we mainy focused on. The objective of this project was to understand the essence of a community and what role it plays in the daily lives of the natives. By making these people gather in one place to perform their household chores all in one place and have fun while doing them. By combining the functions of a Dobhi Gath, Pottery Stations, Water Purification Station, Reservoir for animals and a Bath we would be able to help them save the time that would be otherwise wasted in their search for water that can last for about 5-6 hours. The entire plan was divided into two main zones to make sure that the space for children to play in was seperated from the space where adults would be working and fetching water, there by enabling an ideal circulation.THE DIFFERENT MECHANISMS THAT SERVE THE PURPOSE OF PUMPING WATER DESIGNED CONSIDERING THE LACK OF ELECTRICITY AND OTHER SOURCES OF ENERGY.
