The flyer shows some of our completed and on-going projects in various provinces of Canada and abroad, from small to large to huge. It is free-of-charge. We try to answer people's questions. We reflect on what works and what does not work, to the surprise of many. We also address issues of durability and maintenance, problems and solutions, challenges and ongoing R&D, based on 36 years of professional work, to improve past technologies, features and products, aspects that few if any, articles, conferences, interviews and tours ever touch.
Inspired by the architecture of birds & bees, the ingenuity of the urban poor & architecture of the past, this RecoPlus project can transform slums into safe, healthy dynamic & happy self-help villages. Vacant land is reused. Idle resources are mobilized. Existing infrastructure is optimized. The homeless are housed. Shelter becomes home. Tenure is secured. Micro credit generates work & business. Food is grown. Ingenuity is recognized, rewarded, built upon, replicated & demonstrated. Needs & the right to decent housing are met. Lives are elevated.
Meat & skin are added on the bones of a city in a cost effective & post-consumer manner, for a pragmatic new paradigm integrating planning, design, building, recycling & regeneration.
