July 2011 EDR DesignShift™ Student Charrette

September 1, 2011
Please rate this resource: 

At the California Higher Education Sustainability Conference at Cal State Long Beach, students of the EDR DesignShift™ Charrette worked through a intense integrated design process in less than 48 hours to design integrated building solutions to achieve Zero Net Energy (ZNE). Students came from universities and colleges across California and worked in groups of multiple disciplines ranging from student of architecture to engineering to ecology to psychology.

Students spent day one studying concepts of integrated design roles, project management and team dynamics. Day two was devoted to designing a building through the EDR Design Shift process using strategies and analysis tools taught throughout the day. In a matter of hours students designed, analyzed and presented the projects below. Click on the team to view the project.

The Winning Team walked away with pride. . .oh. . .and an iPad 2 for each team member. Congratulations to all the student participants!
