G`Yaw G`Yaw is Karen language and means slowly, step by step. It’s originally written in Karen, so the translations vary some. First we used an English dictionary, and ended up with Ga Yaw Ga Yaw. After various fancy pronunciations around the world; Gyaw Gyaw turned out to be a better choice. To be very correct; G´Yaw G`Yaw is how a Karen would pronounce it. Since 2009 we have been building houses for people who needs it. We have introduced sustainable architecture along the Thai/Burmese border, both in terms of ecology, economy and culture. We have focused on functionality and new techniques that are collaborative with local traditions and materials available. We have built our own organization, based on democratic principles in a migrant society where this in practice is an unfamiliar term. G`Yaw G`Yaw: step-by-step have our work and philosophy been recognized. Our buildings are chilled, light, well adapted to their use and easy to maintenance. They are based on available materials and familiar techniques, but with an educational approach towards better architecture and sustainability. We have shown democracy in practice within the current etiquette, and been approved for it. Our strength is our knowledge and local ties. Through our sponsors in Norway, we have the opportunity to use or skills, to keep improving and sharing our experiences with as well locals as others interested abroad. We are forever grateful to our sponsors that are making our work possible.
