If you can brave the cold temperatures and you’re near campus on Friday, you’ll want to check out the Net-zero architectural designs on display tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 17) at Pence Hall from noon to 6:00 p.m.
Dr. Greg Luhan’s third year architecture studio will be holding a final review for their design projects of a net-zero, 50-bed dormitory for the Triangle Fraternity House at UK. As a net-zero project, the house would need to use energy derived from the sun, wind and other energy-efficient tools. The projects were completed by three, 5-person design teams that also included input from several engineering students and Triangle members and alumni.
This project is unique not only for its high performance characteristics, but also for its public/private partnership that is enabling its design and construction. The teams have focused on three uniquely different solutions for the final review. It should be an interesting and informative display!
