dc.description.abstractThis capstone looked at a housing problem in Klong Toey which is a slum in Bangkok, Thailand. Currently 100,000 people live in Klong Toey which is only on a 1 square mile plot of land. (Sapsuwan, Peewara, n.d.) The goal was to come up with a new sustainable housing design that could not only solve their housing issue, but also solve power and water shortages and health issues that arise due to their current living situation. The capstone looks at a resource called “Community Action for Sustainable Housing: Building a Low-Carbon Future” to help understand what goes into making a sustainable home. Two case studies were looked at to take ideas that had previously worked. There is also a cost benefit analysis to compare the design of just a simple house to one with more sustainable features added on. In the end it was concluded that there is not enough money to build the most sustainable home so it would be better to just go with the simple design.en_US
