Urban Reforestation

In this study-abroad studio that came through a partnership between RISD and EARTH University, we sought to create replicable low-tech solutions for Costa Rica. Mickey Rockafellar and I developed a greywater garden and a latrine that grows trees in its compost, both for public use in the low-income Martina Bustos barrio. We also looked at ways these ideas for sustainable human waste management could be used in pre-fabricated housing projects. — Winter 2012
