The project by Hug it Forward is innovative way of building. I have seen innovative stuff like this here in the UK via the ‘grand design’ type projects. It would be great if there was much more of this. I think if there was more of this, particularly in future housebuilding or community building would definitely demonstrate the UK’sinnovativeness and willingness to tackle climate change and environmental landfill sites. However other considerations would need to be consider such as their impact on the people using them in terms of climate and durability of such a build.
At a time like this where there is very little money floating around, I think that this would be a great idea to develop and execute in more developing countries, particularly by cash strapped charities. From my experience in India, where building extra classrooms etc, this was not a technique which was even considered, despite the fact that most of the material (rubbish) was right there and free.
