As time passes, the need increases for feasible innovative technology in architecture. In response to this, the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) launched the Architecture at Zero competition to encourage ongoing research on zero net energy design.
For its fifth edition, professional and student participants designed a mixed-use student housing building for a site on the University of California - San Francisco Mission Bay campus. Without a doubt, achieving zero energy is a big feat in large-scale residential buildings — let alone for a college campus.
The jury awarded two Honor Awards, three Citation Awards, and a Special Recognition.
