open in viewer

Chiang Mai has suffered from rapid population growth and inefficient waste management. The Urban Development Institute Foundation has tried to reduce the amount of air pollution by incorporating non- recycled waste into building materials. An attempt at using Tetra Pak for roofing is failing because ultra-violet rays, heat, and moisture are deteriorating the tiles. We researched environmental construction materials, case studies, and local opinions, then constructed prototypes and made recommendations for ecologically friendly roofing. Ultimately, we were able to recommend four different roofing solutions for the UDIF to follow, as well as potential future research groups.
