The building that can turn to follow the Sun.
Design: Mark Biemans
The Ecodome is "Triple-Sustainable" (In fact 6x Sustainable).
Principle Cradle to Cradle.
The Ecodome is being build for 95% from used materials.
The building will last long; also a kind of sustainability.
Almost 100% of the used materials can be used again.
You can either directly re-use the materials, or recycle them.
Cradle to Cradle: food for new products.
Besides these three kinds of sustainability the Ecodome is making use of the newest developments concerning power-induction and isolation.
The Ecodome has the possibility to turn.
Thanks to this feature it is possible to follow the sun with the largest glass-surface because of which you need less power for heating.
(This also gives you the possibility to turn away from wind or choose the view you want).
Isolation is the main building-material. Therefor the Ecodome is extremely economical in the use of energy for heating.
Because of energy-induction through the use of solar-units and wind-units a surplus of power will occur.
Because of this you dont need to be connected to an energy-supplier.
This gives less pollution (depending on what kind of power is used by the supplier).
