Sustainable Design Mantanani-style

We can always come up with wonderful ideas for sustainable buildings but if the locals can’t build and maintain it then it’s not sustainable. Our main objective was to get a camp manager’s house built and the best way to get this done quickly was to let the villagers build it using their own technology.

Biogas Collector

I find myself getting deeper into the shit. I’m not sure how it happened but I have become interested in biogas collectors. This is a device used to collect the biogas (mostly methane) which is emitted when biological waste is digested by bacteria. Arkitrek is working with Camps International to build a demonstration biogas collector at a longhouse near Kudat in northern Sabah.
