Abstract

This project consists of an architectural, structural, and mechanical design for a proposed house for the Solar Decathlon Africa competition taking place in Benguerir, Morocco, in September 2019. This project presents a sustainable, cost-effective, and marketable design that will help promote the idea of green living to African countries. Traditional architecture of the area, structural sandwich panels for modular construction, and a passive downdraft evaporative cooling tower to reduce energy were implemented.
