Solar Heated Experimental Dwelling

This was a project for students at the Sheffield University School of Architecture. I designed it as a live project to build a demonstration building with materials donated by local suppliers. It was built in the end mainly by 5 students working in their 'year out'. First year students also came for one afternoon a week for a period. After the building was completed it was monitored with the help of the department of Physics in the University. One student physicist was employed to write a program for a PET microcomputer to read temperature sensors throughout the building. He also helped to build the electronics to do the monitoring. The building and designs which I did were entered for the Misawa Homes International Competion in Japan in which we won 3rd prize.
