Teams competing in the SDE19 competition are full force, getting ready to submit their next deliverables for the on-going 10-contests.
While addressing the questions of renovation and existing building stocks, the Teams are working hard on the challenge to design, build and operate their full-scale grid-connected, solar-powered homes. The key motivators for their architectural concepts are innovation and resource-responsibility. The SDE19 edition also acknowledges the importance of circular resource use, and that of the urban context for habitation. The Teams must provide ideas to increase energy-efficiency, propose novel solutions and generate knowledge for a more sustainable built environment.
The teams will address the challenges in the following ten contests for the SDE19 competition:
• Engineering & Construction
• Energy Efficiency
• Communication & Social Awareness
• Neighborhood Integration & Impact
• Innovation & Viability
• Circularity & Sustainability
• Comfort Conditions
• House Functioning
• Energy Balance
