Zero carbon 'HOUSE' designed and built by students 'comes home'
From Elizabeth Cass
Design and construct a low cost, zero carbon, family starter home, transport it to Spain, build it, landscape it and open it to the public.
That was the challenge faced by a group of students from the Department of Architecture at The University of Nottingham when they agreed to enter the first ever Solar Decathlon Europe in 2010. Now the Nottingham HOUSE (Home Optimising the Use of Solar Energy) is back home. It officially took pride of place on Green Close - a ‘living lab’ of seven eco-homes on University Park.
