Comment by Celestine Iroegbunam
I am currently researching an ‘African’ Earthship which i hope to locate in the eastern part of Nigeria. Once developed, will be a centre for alternative technology and ICT. I will also design-in a hub for Nehemaya operations, recognising commerce as part of the solution. I plan to show case alternative, appropriate and carbon reducing technologies and methodologies, with special reference to enhanced natural cooling, insect repellence, permaculture and human powered applications. Still in the design stages, but I am interested in evolving Architecture out of traditional designs and materials, adapting waste in construction, enhancing natural cooling by innovation, then adapting appropriate technologies. E.g. solar, low voltage electronics, pedal powered pumps and generators, etc. As to modular cell 'systems' sustainability, any 'human nature' reboot?.
