Me and my friends from M.Sc. Architecture & Environmental Design recently went on an amazing excursion to Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales. Nature, passive technologies and delicious vegan food! What more do you need!? This is a tour around one of the eco cabins – amenities, how the cabin works, history, energy meters and composting toilet! 💩 Worth watching before your trip to CAT – remember no chemical toiletries allowed on the premises so invest in some natural cosmetics, which are also available in CAT’s store. This is due to the water cleaning system as eco cabins are fully sustainable and off grid. Thanks for watching! ★ https://www.instagram.com/veganarchitecture/
