Society Interiors - - PROPERTY -

The In­ter­na­tional Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Stud­ies In­sti­tute in Thai­land has de­signed an eco-friendly cam­pus crafted from 22 re­cy­cled ship­ping con­tain­ers. Now, the in­sti­tute has a clear ex­am­ple when teach­ing stu­dents about the im­por­tance of up­cy­cling and sus­tain­abil­ity, plus plenty of space for ed­u­cat­ing on tree con­ser­va­tion, ur­ban farm­ing, waste man­age­ment and more. As an in­sti­tu­tion aimed at teach­ing oth­ers about sus­tain­abil­ity, the ISDSI made ev­ery ef­fort to min­i­mize any im­pact through­out the build­ing process. The en­tire cam­pus uses low-en­ergy LED light­ing for ar­eas not al­ready lit through co­pi­ous nat­u­ral light­ing. Out­side ar­eas also re­ceived a sus­tain­abil­ity up­grade with the use of com­post­ing, an on-cam­pus gar­den, plants and green spa­ces, all in­tended to help sup­port the soil and pro­vide fresh air.
