Background, low impact no waste: During the last 25 years I have worked with and studied how the use of computers and software have affected architecture and the physical landscape.
First I was in raptures about the possibilities. Though this is still true there are other implications that are all the more worrying. The waste of space in today´s interiors and exteriors, the lack of respect for the natural landscape, the global use of non-renewable materials, and how all of this in various ways is linked to our digital tools.
In “low impact no waste” I have tried to address this. The house is built by a local contractor and a local carpentry shop has milled all the building parts. Every part of the building was designed specifically for this project to awoid waste material. I have used different kinds of wood from sustainably forested woodland.
