Design Challenge:
The Architecture at Zero competition challenge is to create a zero net energy recreation center at the campus of California State University, Monterey Bay.  Two new buildings will be constructed in two phases and will replace two existing buildings and parts of two parking lots.

There are two parts to the competition:

First, entrants will create an overall site plan to accommodate the program outlined below. Entrants are encouraged to highlight any energy efficiency strategies or systems shown. Second, entrants will design two attached buildings in detail, to indicate zero net energy (ZNE) performance. In order to demonstrate the building design and its performance, entrants will provide required documentation and may also include supplementary documentation.
