Abstract [en]

This Master of Science Thesis within Building Technology covers the construction of anecological, sustainable and self-sufficient school canteen for a SOS Children’s Village inZanzibar, Tanzania. The project is called The Green Canteen and is led by Architects withoutBorders in Sweden. The project is an already existing project that is derived from anincreased awareness of unhealthy and innutritious food creating obesity and cardiovasculardiseases in developing countries. The new canteen will accommodate more students thanthe existing one but will also illustrate, by its design and systems, the food’s life cycle andrecycling of natural resources. During the spring of 2015 a Minor Field Study was performedby Catharina Arehög and Elin Pramlid in Zanzibar to evaluate some of the structural issuesassociated with the architect's design. Local building technology, architecture and buildingmaterials were studied in Zanzibar and the new canteen was evaluated in terms ofecological, social and economic sustainability. Finally, a structural analysis was performedwith the aim to improve the building’s design and stability using sustainable buildingmaterials.
