2013 Solar Decathlon: ADAPT

United States

 

Project Description

FROM THE STUDENTS:

Team Texas: The University of Texas at El Paso and El Paso Community College.

The ADAPT home represents El Paso: built at the confluence of two nations and three states; the home creates a bubble of comfort that feels natural on a mountain plateau, high desert, chaparral, or verdant farmland that compose the geography of the area. Using local materials we will build a house that tells of the myriad of cultures present in Far West Texas while maintaining a clean, sophisticated design aesthetic. By harnessing the most abundant resource in the Desert Southwest, ADAPT utilizes forward-thinking technologies to create a net-zero sustainable house that provides flexibility and utility in a new-suburban environment.
