The competition enabled architecture and engineering students from around the world to provide new and innovative thinking for the creation of energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable laboratories.
Winning Entry: Modular Sustainability
According to the judges, this Carnegie Mellon University project, by Dan Addis, John Kim, and Jensen Ying, with faculty sponsor Gary P. Moshier, shows a well-documented and thorough sustainable systems analysis and demonstrates a thoughtful, integrated approach to the design process. The submission includes a straightforward and clear design presentation with a contextual and understated architectural statement. The proposed laboratory systems, particularly the HVAC systems, are practical and site specific, while the design of the community space is creative and inviting.
