Description (parts): “The Ecohouse V01 Prototype showcases many inclusive, innovative, environmentally aware and self-sufficient solutions, including: an integrative design synthesizing inputs from the diverse building cultures of the international student body; a fully traceable primary structure fabricated of 0km pine harvested from the Valldaura forest (the original location and species of the source trees as well as the sequestered carbon and embodied energy of each element are easily accessed by scanning engraved QR codes); translation of a low-tech, universal shingling system into a morphologically responsive, materially optimized envelope using advanced computation and fabricated of 0km oak harvested from the Valldaura forest; entirely off-grid metabolic utilities comprising 4 photovoltaic panels with a combined capacity of 1200 watts for electrical needs; a water system which captures rain in a 10,000 liter internal storage tank and re-uses grey-water to irrigate a small garden; and a toilet that obviates any septic installations by diverting liquid waste for percolation and composting solid waste with a cultivated biome of microorganisms and worms (…).”
