Creighton, ID Availability unrestricted
The extreme climate conditions in Namibia create very uncomfortable living conditions in the metal shacks, known as kambashus, around Windhoek. The goal of this project was to create a two-step thermal regulation process using white paint and paper-sawdust insulation sheets to improve the living conditions within the kambashus. We tested our regulation process in an experimental kambashu and found that it promotes cooler temperatures during hot times of day and warmer temperatures during cold times.
