I didn't find any link between concept and design. Botswana environment is dry and hot during summer days you must focus on your design its not environment friendly design. Hot and dry climate will effect your design. There must be some green spaces and water bodies to make the environment eco friendly. Mostly glass are used in design which will directly effect the indoor temperature. You can also use the solar panels instead of glass which will help you to store and utilize the solar energy.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback with regards to sustainability and concept development. It is a work in progress were most time and resources were spent on the research part of the thesis, but I can assure you I will further refine the design and make it sustainable. Once again, Thank you
