This description of Maxwell Marshall's work was prepared when Maxwell Marshall was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Maxwell Marshall is revolutionizing access to housing for the urban and the rural poor by introducing a building technology that combines bamboo and latrite (red sticky clay) as inexpensive and environmentally sustainable alternatives to conventional building materials. A production and delivery system ensures that low-income consumers benefit not only from the finished product but also from the cultivation and production of materials.Maxwell joins the invention-led development group supported by the Lemelson Foundation.
