Bangkok Bio-Solar House
In an article featured in the Inhabitat, the blog writes about a Thailands first Bio Solar House.
Sustainability is wholly integrated with home life with Thailands first Bio-Solar House, a completely self-reliant abode in Bangkok where nothing goes to waste.
The brainchild of Soontorn Boonyatikam, a professor of architecture at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand who is also the designer and occupant, the Bio-Solar House was developed in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team comprised of students and faculty from architecture, engineering and science departments.
Although the exterior features of the house differ little from the average middle-class Thai dwelling, its true powers lie in the installed functionalities that course through its interiors.
This concept I think could also come in handy with many housing schemes in Africa that produce a lot or recyclable waste that could be put to good use.
