Future Ecology Designed

Sustainable design theory manifested in products, infrastructure, and graphic representation. A utopian glimpse of a future New Zealand where environmental considerations are of tantamount importance, and society is designed to accommodate the native ecosystem.

C2C House

The Cradle to Cradle house is a very good application of the water cycles I was theorising. I also particularly love the ventilation system, and it's use of passive aerodynamics- in fact most of the cyclical nature of the design is indeed passive, and self-stabilised.

The house is obviously designed for a context where space is not an overriding issue, and therefore the operational requirements differ somewhat from our challenge. However, it is encouraging to see a more concrete example of the general water systems I hope to look at, and one executed so beautifully.

Electricty from spinach extract? I don't know if photosynthesis works like that. Unless you convert the biomass to energy, although that would mean constantly replanting. Hmmmm....
