Award Winning Plastidobe Ecological Housing

Abel Gómez and Morón Santos Designs The Plastidobe Ecological Housing

Abel Gómez and Morón Santos, the thinktank behind the highlighted project Plastidobe by Abel Gómez and Morón Santos explains, Plastidobe is a self-build, environmental, bio-structural, sustainable, inexpensive housing system. Each module used to build the house consists of 4 recycled plastic ribbed plaques gathered by pressure on the corners, making for easy transportation, packaging and assembly. Moisturized dirt fills each module creating a solid earth trapezoidal block that is acoustic and water resistant. A galvanized metal structure creates the ceiling, later covered with pasture serving as thermic insulator. In addition to that, alfalfa roots grow inside the walls for structural reinforcement..
