The Wales Institute for Sustainable Education

The Wales Institute for Sustainable Education (Wise), designed by architects Pat Borer and David Leais, uses “Basically plants and earth,” to quote Borer. Also animals, as in addition to a timber frame, rammed earth walls and a coating of lime and hemp, it uses sheep’s wool for thermal insulation. Wise is part of Cat, the Centre for Alternative Technology.
