An ‘active’ passive system. This concept uses a panel system that sustains a passive cooling system. Based on existing solar refrigerator systems, the units could be expanded into a wall system for areas with high year round temperatures. The system could be used to assist in the rebuilding of Haiti or similar areas of destruction. It utilizes rubble as the outer layer. This layer heats up and evaporates the moisture into the dirt, which would consequently draw out heat from the interior space.
