Solar Futures

Solar Decathlon Build Challenge 2023


Kishani de Silva & Hector Rodriguez

Software: Revit, Rhino, Adobe Suite

For 15 months, my teammates and I have been working on the Solar Decathlon Build Challenge 2023. This worldwide competition consists of finding innovative ways to build sustainably. Our three main challenges are climate, cost, and homelessness. Therefore, we decided to build the first permitted 3D-printed house in Southern California located at Woodbury University in Los Angeles. To be net positive, we are recycling and reusing as much water as possible by using a filter for the greywater and capturing the rainwater for the landscape. There are also photovoltaic panels on the roof. The materials chosen are also sustainable where we are recycling and reusing as much as possible to lower the embodied environmental impact. We did research on how to make the concrete environmentally friendly for instance using CarbonCure which captures the CO2 that goes in the concrete mix which also contains 40% of fly ash, a by-product of coal, or trying to use nanofoam to tailor our mix.

Post-Anthropocentric Park

Spring 2023

Instructor: Anthony

Software: Rhino, Grasshopper, Adobe Suite

Post-Anthropocentric Park aims at designing a space for humans to coexist with insects, birds, and endangered species in the post-carbon world. Nowadays, the population and the number of urban areas are increasing too, which is reducing wildlife because they do not have any areas to go. The project incorporates design choices that benefit multiple species simultaneously, with a focus on using the building facade and camouflage as primary strategies. The goal is to create a space that promotes cohabitation between humans and wildlife, rather than domestication or zoos. The project also integrates features that cater to the unique needs of various species, such as nesting sites for birds and habitats for insects, to increase pollination. Each strategy benefits both humans and wildlife. By prioritizing the coexistence of multiple species, the resulting design creates a harmonious and inclusive environment that benefits both humans and wildlife.

Neighborhood Justice Center

Fall 2021

Instructor: Daniel Spilman

Software: Rhino, Grasshopper, Adobe Suite

For the neighborhood justice center, my main concept of the design is to create a less stressful environment that the justice center can create. This is why the programs are organized from public programs on the ground floor to the hearing rooms on the top floors because there is more sunlight, natural ventilation, and open spaces for the more stressful programs. The design strategy is to have a biophilic design because it helps with stress and creates a more peaceful environment. Therefore, there is a water feature at the entrance, in the courtyard which also helps to reduce the noise. Adding a lot of plants and greenery to bring more nature into the building. Incorporating “breathing space” like courtyards, balconies, and outside circulation. There is also a roof garden on the southwest side of the building to allow sunlight and natural ventilation everywhere in the building. Finally, bringing more natural elements like material and colors.

Res-Solution is a research and education building that aims to find optimistic solutions to the issue of sea level rising as well as to explore spatial relationships of contrasting forms.

The major issue of sea level rising is time. Therefore, one of our main ideas is the concept of past, present and future. It is incorporated in the design by representing the past with an organic form which can be referred to as high resolution and the future with a low poly form equaling low resolution.

The theme of low and high resolution is the other major influencer of the overall design. It defined the shape, quality of spaces and structure as it creates and ambiguity between what is low and high resolution space.
