[sw]LAB NZE Prototype



Detroit, Michigan, Fall 2014-spring 2016with Ford Motor Company Fund (Ford C3 Grant) and Community Partners: Detroit Public Schools

sw[LAB] NZE prototype creates a new Hybridized Ecosystem––an Energy Farm/Outdoor Classroom (EF/OC) for the Sampson Webber Leadership Academy and surrounding

Tireman neighborhood. Our vision engages the community and leverages assets of a strong institutional presence, vacancy, and diverse partners in order to generate energy, wealth and educational opportunities. Balancing economic, environmental and social values, our project links the school and neighborhood through a hybridized net zero energy (HNZE) landscape and infrastructure networks/structures. The Ford C3 “re-award” would have allowed studio[Ci] and our partners to build and test the NZE Prototype structure on school grounds.
