Minus carbon and plus energy refugee shelter

Dabaieh, Marwa LU (2016) In Zero Carbon Buildings Today and in the Future p.71-76
Abstract
This study discusses a proposal for a 37 m² refugee
earth shelter that could be built with the help of seven
people in 11 working days. The study is an experimental, participatory, living lab methodology for creating an eco-cycle shelter. The building’s skeleton is made from a minus carbon earth mix and is equipped with renewables that produce more energy than what the building consumes. No waste is generated during the building’s construction, operation and after end of life, and passive concepts for heating, cooling and daylight are used. The beneficiaries of this design include not only refugees but also the majority of the world’s urban poor.
