One person's trash is another person’s building material...or so it would seem. In the village of Sabon Yelwa the Developmental Association for Renewable Energies (DARE) has instigated an ingenious scheme to transform the region’s litter problem into a positive future for the community through the construction of new residences.

This is amazing!! It is wonderful to see people living in poverty coming up with these wonderful inventions. This s not only helping people live in the poor society but also recycling and saving the environment. I think if everyone begins to keep this trend going that many people living in poverty will soon have a better living environment. This is a great way of communities helping one another to become better.

whats really interesting about this is the twenty times strenth then bricks building which are normally the buildings built in Nigeria and most of Africa. Another interesting fact is the resistance to earthquake which is very important.

Creativity at its finest! In Sabon Yelwa new residences are constructed from plastic bottles. It is a great way of using something that does harm for the planet and turning it into something beneficial. DARE uses litter as a way to provide decent shelter and eliminate trash filling the streets. Plus it serves as an interesting focal piece!

Design Education for a Sustainable Future - Metropolis Magazine

Design Education for a Sustainable Future - Metropolis Magazine | Técnicas Novedosas de Construcción | Scoop.it

In his introduction to Design Education for a Sustainable Future, published recently by Routledge/earthscan, Rob Fleming says his premise “is remarkably simple. It is based on a series of straightforward questions that seek to uncover the context, values, and behaviors necessary for effective twenty-first century design education. Is society moving towards a new sustainable or integral worldview, a new set of cultural values that are reshaping the very fabric of human existence? If so, how are such profound shifts in consciousness impacting the design and construction industries? And how can design educators better reflect the zeitgeist of the new century by moving from well-intentioned but lightweight ‘greening’ to the deeper and more impactful ideals of sustainability and resilience

A Survey of Bamboo Architecture

A Survey of Bamboo Architecture | Técnicas Novedosas de Construcción | Scoop.it
To many architects and designers, bamboo, one of the most eco-friendly materials on the planet, is much more than just a tool with which to decorate and embellish existing structures...

This eco-friendly material has the same technical performance as most timber, concrete, and steel constructions- but with a  smaller carbon footprint. One of the fastest-growing plants anywhere on Earth, bamboo's regenerative properties are unmatched.

This collection of buildings showcases the natural aesthetic beauty of bamboo architecture.

Preservation & Environmentally Responsive Architecture: Villa Solaire by JKA and FUGA

Preservation & Environmentally Responsive Architecture: Villa Solaire by JKA and FUGA | Técnicas Novedosas de Construcción | Scoop.it

Revisiting traditional construction techniques, French architecture studios JKA and FUGA have converted an 1826 farmhouse into a luxury villa. Conceived as a sundial and exposed in its four façades to the path of the sun, Villa Solaire responds to its environment while maintaining historic integrity.

 

Located in the district of Pied de La Plagne, Morzine, France, the volume was singled out by the municipality as a landmark for traditional architecture.  Seeking to preserve its appearance while allowing light to enter the building, the architects used a traditional technique of decorative cut-outs within the uniform wooden cladding in a simple and contemporary pattern.


"Throughout the year, the surrounding roofs and buildings cast their shadows on the façades," state the architects. "The pattern within the cladding is designed to respond to the path described by these shadows". JKA and FUGA further explain that the house was conceived as a sundial, exposed in its four façades to the path of the sun: thus the name Villa Solaire...

Sustainable buildings created from bamboo

Sustainable buildings created from bamboo | Técnicas Novedosas de Construcción | Scoop.it
What’s happening right now?Much of the urban world is looking for sustainable housing solutions for the ever congesting urban spaces.

The use of conventional concrete material has proved to be a burden on environment and a costly option for underdeveloped areas.

Interestingly, it has also been acknowledged that bamboo can be a solution to many of these urban woes. This material is cheap, long lasting, earthquake resistant, and easily available.

Bamboo houses provide a natural ambiance to the occupants and leads to less consumption of electricity. They also have a long life of about 30-years, if maintained regularly...

Green Architecture: Student Designs for Low-Income, Sustainable Housing

Green Architecture: Student Designs for Low-Income, Sustainable Housing | Técnicas Novedosas de Construcción | Scoop.it

It’s hard for homes to be green. Despite long-term energy savings, it’s even harder for low-income homes to afford upfront costs of some sustainable materials. But ecological design doesn’t have to mean more “green” from your wallet. In fact, using recycled and sustainable material, as one local project has shown, can be both economically viable and environmentally friendly.

The San Antonio Alternative Housing Corporation (SAAHC) is a nonprofit organization that provides housing and support services for low and moderate income communities in the central Texas area.  When they construct new housing units, they want to minimize up-front construction costs as well as long-term operational expenses.  They were open to exploring alternate construction techniques, but wanted an opportunity to test the viability of these options.

As it happened, Taeg Nishimoto, Associate Dean of the UTSA College of Architecture, had been working for several years to develop a program that would give architecture students experience throughout the entire process of realizing a project from conception through construction...
