The presentation today was about sustainable housing. I found it very interesting because i have heard a lot of buzz around the idea of sustainable housing, but have not heard of any specific examples of how to go about transforming a house to be sustainable.
This group gave several specific ways to convert housing to be a more sustainable product.
-They Talked about using recycled products to build houses-which seems obvious, but not very many people have been doing it.
-Half flush toilets save water
-Green Roofs provide energy
-Cob building-regains sense of community adn they last long and are easy to repair
-Bamboo as support beams- common in south east asia or other humid locations.
i also enjoyed the cover page. i like the humanistic side symbolized by the face.
