4.274 Design Innovation for Distributed Energy


Class Info

Explores design opportunities and technical challenges in the vertical integration of energy sector materials in designs for the built environment. Interdisciplinary design approach enables students to work directly with the selected energy harvesting materials to understand the performance attributes and their application value. Students investigate the spatial, social and environmental impacts of decentralized energy distribution through the development of design proposals and proof-of-concept application prototypes capable of providing measurable results. Engages research faculty outside of the School of Architecture and Planning. Limited to 20.
