|Key words||ecology, building, sustainable development, environment, energy|
|Aim of the project||
The project “Ecological Building – Building with Nature” was as a campaign aimed at acquainting both wider and expert public with different aspects of sustainable development in the fields of ecological building, energy consumption and environmental protection.
EXPEDITIO decided to conduct this project aware of the environmental and energetic crisis in which we live, concentrating on energy sources that are almost exhausted or non-renewable, while their usage causes pollution with considerable misbalance of natural flows. As architects, we are faced with the problem that buildings are responsible for 40-50 % energy consumption and approximately the same percentage of the CO2 emission.
The campaign included setting up a website www.expeditio.org/expeditio2 and producing accompanying promotional material – a brochure and a poster.
This project was a first step – i.e. informing about the existing types of so-called alternative energy sources and their application in architecture, with special emphasis on solar energy and all its forms, what we see as basis for all further activities in this field.
