Stephen Lamb from Touching the Earth Lightly and Ilac Diaz from My Shelter Foundation  teamed up for the first time at last year’s Shanghai Biennale . They share a vision to provide environmentally-friendly energy, food, and housing solutions that just about anyone can afford. And the idea that people can be empowered to be self-sufficient has garnered significant support from celebrities like David de Rothschild of Plastiki fame , who attended the opening at Luneta Park, according to The Guardian.
“This is a living example of how you can take food, shelter, water and energy using existing resources that people often disregard as wasteful and actually turn them into something that is useful, and beneficial and can create a quality of life,” he said.
In addition to showcasing food growing solutions that require no soil and other low tech innovations, the solar-powered pavilion also acts as a launching pad for Liter of Light’s latest nighttime light bulb made with LED lights . So far they have distributed them to 150 locations throughout the Philippines.
