This building proposal goes with the flow

This proposal submitted by design firm Betillon/Dorval-Bory for Costa Rican NGO, FUNDECOR, would emphasize the organization’s commitment to sustainability by designing the building to maximize airflow as well as allow as much natural light as possible and minimizing its presence on the surrounding environment. Fresh air flows in to through front of the building and is expelled out the back via a blacktop heated by the sun which forces air upward and out of the building.

Unfortunately, this proposal didn’t win the design competition.
