And The Winner Is...

Monday, Nov 23, 2015

Winner of the 2015 US Dept of Energy Solar Decathlon, The Stevens Institute of Technology's SURE HOUSE is a residential prototype of a truly sustainable and resilient home for the New Jersey shore. This student-designed and -built home uses 90% less energy than a typical New Jersey home through Passive House measures, is flood-proofed using a high-performance plastic and fiber-composite protective shell, and is fully solar powered. These measures combine to create a home which seeks to reduce its contribution to global climate change while also bracing for the effects of rising sea levels and increasingly severe storms.

Faculty and student team leaders will present the project in depth - looking at the design process and issues surrounding flood-proof, low energy homes as well as the construction sequence. The team will also offer an in-depth, behind the scenes, look at performance data collected during the 10-day competition in Irvine, CA, including the home's energy generation, energy consumption and interior comfort data.

Sponsors: AIANY Committee on the Environment & New York Passive House

Date: Monday, November 23, 6 - 8 PM

Location: Center for Architecture, AIA-NY, 536 Laguardia Place
