LEEDing the Race to Zero. The course is a hands-on exploration of the application of the LEED for Homes rating system to four entries developed for the Race to Zero student competition.
All course materials (including syllabus) are available on the publicly-accessible course web site.
The collective objective of this coalition of courses is to develop and submit highly-competitive Race to Zero projects.
Course Content: The Ball State University Department of Architecture has enrolled four teams in the 2017 Race to Zero student design competition sponsored by the US Department of Energy. These teams will look at the four building typologies established for the contest: Suburban Single-Family; Urban Single-Family; Attached Housing; and Small Multifamily. Prof. Tom Collins' section of ARCH 501 will take the lead in developing the architectural solutions that will be entered into the competition.
