2016 Design Competition:


The 2017 student competition focuses on a new single-story with mezzanine office and repair building in the Diego Ramirez Islands (Islas Diego Ramirez) in Chile, South America. Unlike past competitions the building must be located in  the Diego Ramirez Islands, or the entry will be disqualified. The final HVAC System Selection and Design for the proposed building shall address the following major design goals:


  • Low Life Cycle Cost
  • Low Environmental Impact
  • Comfort and Health
  • Creative High Performance Green Design
  • Synergy (with architecture)
