This project looks like the U.S. DOE Solar Decathalon, which is for homes, but the idea would be to have a new building type addressed each year, and student teams focusing on how best to design and produce such buildings using all the best techniques for sustainability
My project involves creating books, artwork and products connected to my bed & breakfast, in part as a way to fundraise for social justice and for neighborhood improvements.
Brilliant designers have created a Pattern Language for Conservation Economies -- sustainable triple-bottom-line communities. Let's expand that language and make more regional variations.
Architecture 2030 is an American Institute of Architects project, about making all new architect-assisted buildings net-zero energy buildings by 2030. Now, 2030 Districts are forming with the intent of using 50% as much fossil fuel & water by 2030. The "palette" is a set of design principles.
There are some pathways to community solar development that are not constrained by utility rules and regulations, yet they are all-but-ignored by traditional developers. Let's roll our own!
Existing eco-villages (intentional living communities) often use 1/2, 1/4, or even less energy compared to "regular" communities. The designs that allow high-standards of living with low- low- energy use need to be documented and shared so that humans can start to decarbonize our energy systems.
Solar plus batteries and human-powered generators are now capable of running dozens of tools and appliances, and those are operations that can be entirely outside of the realm of regulated utility companies. These solutions can be portable, convenient, reliable, resilient, and cost effective.
How can we engage employers to hire autistic individuals to participate in meaningful work that capitalizes on their strengths?
