Review

"Time and again, Mittul and Munir show us that a collection of unskilled builders can quickly contribute to an enjoyable process, building not just a shelter but bonds between us."

- Darrel Deboer

"Mittul and Munir were able to generate a sense of aspiration and group cohesion in a very short space of time. Important qualities I feel when you are co-constructing something."

- Danielle Von Der Borch
