A wide, green veranda acts as a green cushion and the ground floor utilizes concave slopes for geothermal heating and cooling – the building can avoid east-north monsoon winds which are dry and cold in the winter, while alternatively taking advantage of east-south winds to cool the interior in the summer. Solar cell, rainwater and geothermal systems are just a few of the initiatives taken to make this an energy efficient design.

In a community where everyone constructs their own home, Kiến Việt is hoping that the community center can be a model of green design that all his neighbors can be inspired by and build upon.

    achei esta idéia muito interessante,desenvolvo um trabalho em uma comunidade que sofre com a desigualdade social,e possuo uma área de 5.0000m2 no mesmo local,onde penso em formar uma pequena vila com autosustentabilidade para mais ou menos 15 famílias,seguindo o modelo corretamente ecologico.Que acham dessa idéia?Aceito sugestões e ajuda.
