A Competition for Zero Net Energy Architecture

Architecture at Zero 2013

Architecture at Zero 2013 is a zero net energy design competition open to students and professionals worldwide, engaging architecture, engineering, planning students and professionals in the pursuit of energy efficient design.

The challenge is to create a design for a new, roughly 150 unit mixed-use residential apartment building located in the Tenderloin neighborhood in San Francisco, California.

The building must be a mix of affordable and market rate housing units, include a full neighborhood-serving grocery store on the ground level, and be plausibly designed as close to zero net energy as possible.
