The School of Design & Environment is the first net-zero energy building of its kind in the tropics.
A large roof frames and shelters loosely arranged learning spaces with fully openable facades.
The roof hosts more than 1200 photovoltaic panels while a hybrid cooling system provides a comfortable, energy-efficient working environment.
Sectional connections across programmatic zones set up unexpected meetings for students and faculty.
Test-bedding areas located along the facade of the building allow for 1:1 scale prototyping.
