here’s an article written by my colleague ms. cathy guivencan bout a green structure….
Here’s one of the best practice examples on sustainable building approach, the S-House in Austria. The S-House is an innovative construction project of GrAT (Center for Appropriate Technology) who act as the builder and technology designer and who put all of the elements of sustainable construction which considered the entire life cycle of the building materials in the design and construction process. All the materials used in the building are renewable which means that after the end of its life return to various ecological systems as well as recyclable. Important to take note are the innovative solutions used such as straw insulation, custom made screws, use of clay mud, wood technology and modular design of the building. Hopefully we can create a Philippine version that is suitable for our climate condition with the upcoming Zero Carbon Project. “
