2012: UC Merced WINNERS
The design challenge was a zero net energy (ZNE) student housing or administrative office building design for the University of California Merced in Merced, California. As part of the Architecture at Zero 2012 challenge, entrants were asked to create a diagrammatic district energy plan for the Bellevue Gateway development.
The challenge was to include buildings will be part of the Bellevue Gateway, a new mixed-use development located on the campus that will act as both the primary entrance to the University and as a bustling center of activity with sports facilities, dining, residential spaces, administration, and parking.
