Working on the posters for the Sustainability exhibition in Bømlo (Norway) April 2016.
We are preparing four posters on topics related to recycling, reusing and reducing.
Last 26th of February Mrs. Bàrbara García, an architect specializing in pedagogy of architecture, gave us a wonderful lecture about sustainable architecture. The second and third year students of our Secondary School enjoyed this event where we all learnt what it means exactly the concept of sustainability: bio-architecture, passive architecture, green architecture… are words that we often confuse and Bàrbara defined them for us through examples of real buidings.
In summary, we concluded that a sustainable building is one that is best suited to the environment in which it is built and used materials nearby that are easily found in the local areas and they do not involve large costs or waste of any kind. Good isolation, a better use of light, local materials and specially in the case of our area, proper ventilation, will help to make our houses more sustainable.
