The Goodearth houseboat takes paradise-seeking tourists through the stunning backwater landscape of lagoons, canals, and rivers in Kerala , Southern India. In a network of waterways bustling with houseboats of all kinds, the Goodearth has tried to do something different from the standard luxury services by appealing to eco-tourism . It has built a more cooperative tour service created by residents from four villages south of  Kochi that tries to lessen its eco-footprint.

Comments Off on Architect Manthey Kula Explores Seaweed as Natural Insulation For Sustainable Building

Architect  Manthey Kula is exploring seaweed as an innovative way to create natural thermal insulation. One of five Challenger projects showcased during 2011′s Norwegian Architecture Festival , Kula’s work explores the idea that these materials are natural renewable resources that could be turned into  sustainable building materials while at the same time encouraging local industries which grow, harvest and dry seaweed and kelp for production. Supported by  SINTEF , Kula’s investigation is ongoing and will be testing the material properties and methods of drying seaweed sustainably. + Manthey Kula Images by C.
