These modular, net-zero, treatment units use ultra-efficient building envelope technology to moderate the temperature of the unit and improve comfort while incorporating easy-to-clean and bactericidal materials to simplify decontamination efforts. The autonomous units can easily deploy in ~ 3 – 7 days with ten people in remote and isolated communities.
SXSW Eco’s Place by Design competition celebrates innovative design work that transforms the built environment for positive economic, environmental and social impact. The visionary projects showcased in Place by Design demonstrate the potential for public space to cultivate and revive localized culture and to profoundly affect many aspects of society, from civic engagement to environmental adaptation to public health. In addition to the PXD competition, the accompanying program features workshops, coaching sessions and a variety of opportunities intended to further the field of place-based design and foster connections between attendees. Applications will open when our season launches in early 2016.
