Ecological Living Module

To highlight the critical role of sustainable building systems innovation, CEA collaborated with Gray Organschi Architecture and UN Environment on an exhibition of the Ecological Living Module (ELM). The ELM is intended to generate a robust discourse on the priority challenges facing future housing. The ELM will serve as an open framework for a range of participants to demonstrate new solutions to universal technical challenges including 1. Resilient construction techniques using renewable materials and resources, 2. Secure on-site solar energy, 3. Safe sustainable water capture and purification, 4. Indoor air quality remediation, and 5. Waste management in support of distributed micro farming.
