Type of work: Research and site of practical experimentation.
Key words: Green architecture, planning based on principles of ecology and permanent culture (permaculture).
Description: We access a piece of land in Nesodden (2 500 square meters). The site will serve as a field of training where ideas related to wastewater treatment, closed loops, life-cycle processes, rainwater harvesting systems, green roofs/walls and small scale food production will be explored.
Method: The work will investigate aspects of permaculture planning. The method emphasize on involving elements that maintain at least three functions, and that the interplay gives more than one effect.
The aim is to create an example of how to use the land by focusing on entirety and integration. Further, we wish to work out methods for sustainable solutions that can serve as clear examples of how such measures can be set out in life.
Work group: Stenberg/Sørensen
Technical support: Wastewater management experts at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB).
Supported by: Applications are under development in approaching suitable funding programs i.e. the Norwegian State Housing Bank (Husbanken).
