Imagine RIT showcases the most innovative and creative projects of RIT students, including their project to create roofs for 4Walls houses.
The 4Walls Project will be part of the roofing materials initiative at Rochester Institute of Technology. There a senior design team is exploring ways to use local waste materials to create roofing tiles. These will replace the current zinc roofs and will also create a small business for people in El Sauce, Nicaragua.
As one professor at RIT put it, “Instead of paying for metal, let’s pay wages to local people.”
