is an experimental, sustainable real-estate project in Providence, RI, centered around the ideas of:
incremental development, and
sustainable transition design.
From May 2018-January 2019, I acquired, adapted, and experimented with different living models for myself and volunteer residents in a triplex in Providence, called Earthouse.
This space is currently an operational, rented living space in Providence, RI.
Earthouse is a triplex in Providence which has been sustainably updated to support a zero waste, ecologically conscious lifestyle.
The house features:
-A solar panel system that offsets more than 100% of electricity use.
-A garden with composting on-site
-A rainwater harvesting barrel.
The location has a walker's score of 90, and a bike score of 94, and is located next to many food vendors and parks.
*Earthouse is located in Fox Point, on the colonized native lands of the Narragansett, Wampanoag, and Nehantic.
ROADMAP is an exploration of sustainable transition changes proposed for Earthouse.
DIS/RUPT is an alternative exploration of how the mechanism of capitalism is at play in Earthouse, and speculation on how to disrupt that mechanism.
