Visiting Samsung Green Tomorrow Showcase House (August 24, 2011, Samsung C & T Green Tomorrow, Yongin, Korea)
‘Green Tomorrow’ is a zero-carbon house developed by Samsung C & T as a showcase of sustainable design for South Korea. Using advanced technologies of sustainable energy and housing construction, this showcase house reduces 56% of energy consumption. Concisely, this showcase house dreams to become a zero-carbon house by unifying the passive and the active way of energy consumption. The passive way reduces 56% of energy consumption, while the active way uses the left 44% of energy to produce alternative energy.
Until now, the cost problem has prevented the realization of zero-carbon concept. This noticeable attempt of Samsung C & T should be highly regarded as a pioneer study for the sustainable energy and housing construction.
