Design To Zero Competition :: BAC Team

Junald Severo, a BAC student, wants to form a team to enter the Dow Solar Design to Zero Competition.

Contestants are asked to develop and propose innovations necessary to achieve affordable, high performing and energy-efficient housing solutions on a global scale. The competition is open to all undergraduate or graduate students worldwide studying design, interior design, sustainable design and all other relevant subjects. The competition is envisioned as a global brainstorming exercise in which competitors cooperate in an ongoing dialogue and assessment of ideas. The competition will be peer-reviewed in three elections: 1) Schematic Design, 2) Design Development and 3) Final Design. The timing and topics of the elections may be seen in the Schedule and Rules pages of this site.

There will be a generous first, second and third prize ($20,000, $10,000, and $5,000, respectively) as well as three Honorable Mentions awarded at a 2012 ceremony.

This competition will be a Gateway Project and students will earn Practice Credits under the direction of David Eccleston.  If you are interested, please contact Junald at and/or David at
