Kris Wilson

This is the outcome

This is one of his designs

On Wednesday the 3rd of June a man named Kris Wilson who works for design house architecture came to room 18 to talk about architecture and how to make Eco friendly houses. The definition of architecture is: The art and science of buildings (creative and technical). He also said that 50 % of waste in New Zealand was from buildings. He told us special ways of getting the heat in in winter and keeping the heat out in summer on hot days. A new thing that builders do these days when finishing with old pieces of wood reusing it instead of throwing it out straight away. Another way of not wasting water in Eco houses is having a restriction so you do not waste water. Kris Wilson trys his best to use locally sourced resources such as wood so that they reduce transport which is being sustainable. Everyone learnt a new thing when Kris cam =)
