October 2011 EDR DesignShift™ Student Charrette

November 9, 2011
Please rate this resource: 


At the University of California Santa Barbara, students of the EDR DesignShift™ Charrette worked through a intense integrated design process over two days to design integrated building solutions to achieve Zero Net Energy (ZNE). Teams were then given two weeks to continue work and submit for the final design competition.  Students came from universities and colleges across California and worked in groups of multiple disciplines ranging from 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.  Click on the teams below to view each project.  The winning teams were anounced November 28th, 2011.

Thank you to all the student participants!
