A self-sufficient solar prefabricated house that collects rainwater has been built

Today we are talking about a new example of sustainable construction. In this case, it is a prefabricated solar house that is totally self-sufficient and that also collects rainwater. Thanks to this self-sufficient system, this house can produce food throughout the year. The project has been developed by the University of Washington in St. Louis, Missouri.

Sustainable construction with bricks and food insulators

In the face of the serious global problem of the increase in waste, new ideas are emerging that are committed to sustainable construction and the use of resources. This time it is about using organic waste, such as potatoes, mushrooms or corn, as sustainable building materials. Thanks to this solution, the volume of waste would be reduced and action would be taken against the depletion of resources.

Edificios eficientes para limpiar el aire

Los efectos del cambio climático y las nuevas formas de conectividad entre las personas hacen que el sector de la construcción permanezca en constante actualización para satisfacer las necesidades de los usuarios. Algunos ejemplos de esta renovación son los ecobarrios, las smart cities o los edificios eficientes que ayudan a limpiar el aire gracias a sus fachadas o al revestimiento empleado.

New hotel with ventilated facades of Sistema Masa

The new project of which today we talk is a hotel with ventilated façades of Sistema Masa. The property will have two facades, one exterior and one interior that gives way to a courtyard garden. The hotel, which will occupy almost all the blocks, has opted for this type of façades to avoid surcharges on energy bills and to get a building more committed to efficiency and the environment.
