A Proposed Resort In The Philippines Is All About Sustainability
Shrinking carbon footprints is all the rage these days. The Nautilus Eco-Resort project in Palawan, the Philippines aims to avoid one altogether. Proposed by architect Vincent Callebaut in September, the 27,000-square-meter (290,626-square-foot) facility aims to be in tune with the natural world -- starting with the spiral shell motif recurring throughout its design. The goal is to produce a hotel of "zero emission, zero waste, zero poverty," Mr. Callebaut's firm said in a news release.
