Yale University and UN Environment unveiled an eco-tiny house in New York City!
The 22-square-meter tiny house is powered 100% by renewable energy and is testing the potential for the minimal use of natural resources such as water. The unit can accommodate up to four people and has the potential for both domestic and commercial purposes.
Each tiny house uses solar energy and uses less than 1% of toxic semiconductor materials, has on-site water collection, a micro-agriculture infrastructure, natural daylighting, plant-based air purification, and passive cross-ventilation.
“Adequate housing is at the heart of sustainable urbanization,” said Maimunah Mohd Sharif, executive director of UN-Habitat. “The use of proper building materials, better planning, and improved construction techniques can make energy use in buildings more efficient. If adopted widely, this practice can create jobs and prosperity with lower greenhouse gas emissions.”
Rapid urbanization and economic growth challenge communities to sustainably expand capacity. There is no one size fits all solution to climate change or future sustainability. However, the UN’ new sustainable tiny house is moving in the right direction to address the world’s pressing housing needs.
