Architectural Thesis entitled Davao Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Complex: A Public Interaction to Waste Scheme Through Biomorphic Architecture
LOOK: This is an Architectural Thesis of our Design Team Job Captain, Raysnil Lumpay, entitled Davao Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Complex: A Public Interaction to Waste Scheme Through Biomorphic Architecture.
Biomorphic design is one of the contemporary approaches influenced by nature. It is a modern architectural style that embraces natural shapes and patterns into the architecture. It aims at turning naturally organic shapes into functional structures.
Did you know, leading countries like the US, Japan, China, and European Countries (i.e., Germany, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, etc.) have been producing and utilizing energy from Waste-to-Energy facilities? This was prompted by a concern for groundwater quality as well as the scarcity of land for landfilling. Even a tiny country like Singapore has a solid waste disposal infrastructure consisting of four (4) waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities.
In the Philippines, Senate Bill No. 1789 or the proposed "Waste-to-Energy Act" is being pushed, which allows the use of WTE facilities in waste treatment and disposal and to generate sustainable energy. Davao City, in particular, has included the WTE as an alternative waste disposal infrastructure in its approved 10-year Solid Waste Management (SWM) Plan. It is the same for many LGUs in Mindanao based on some of the 10-year SWM Plans we came across.
