Help MSU School of Architecture students create and build a net-zero energy dwelling
MSU’s School of Architecture is excited to participate and share with you about our goal for students to design and build a small contemporary net-zero energy dwelling and how you can help support the project.
In 2018 School of Architecture faculty and students collaborated with local non-profit and faith-based organizations on a tiny home project that would serve as a prototype for affordable housing in the community. We are embarking on another similar project in 2020—one that will be designed and built to be net-zero energy, water and waste independent.
Built by students, the home will be designed to take advantage of modular design principles. The dwelling will serve as housing for visiting lecturers and faculty to test its quality of life characteristics for one year. Following this year of testing, the dwelling will be sold and delivered to a rural community, providing funds for construction for a second unit.
Your contribution will create a perpetual teaching, learning and outreach effort serving housing needs in rural Montana.
Will you join us on the quest and make a gift to the net-zero tiny home project? Your support during MSU Giving Day 2021 will have a lasting impact. Onward!
