Architect (Kris Wilson)

Hi, on Wednesday 3rd June, Kris Wilson, an eco-architect, came in and talked to our class about eco arcitecture. Some thing I learnt were:
  • Always think about energy usage
  • Sustainable- Working in unison with the environment
  • Architecture-The art and science of building
  • Small is good
  • High level insulation
  • Use ventilation to take away moisture in the house
  • Use efficient heating and lighting
  • Use low flow taps and showers to save water

  • The thicker the walls, the thicker the insulation, the warmer the house
  • Solar panels help the enviroment
  • With light if they are set in the ceiling, the insulation gets cut aruond them so heat escapes
  • To be an architect you need to be good at Maths, Distances and Computers.
