Seminar students earn winning entry in Architecture at Zero competition in San Francisco.

Students from my fall semester Case Studies in Sustainable Design seminar have placed in an international design competition. The winning design blends aesthetic goals with building performance goals. Exploiting aspects of local contemporary design while at the same time addressing the impact of buildings on climate change, the team of five students worked collaboratively to design a beautiful urban infill solution and reach performance goals below 15 EUI for market rate and affordable housing.
