Competition Aims
The competitors should design an Ecohouse in a community context for up to six people which should:
- Minimize the use of the earth''s resource water, fossil fuel energy, materials and their maintenance for the life of the building.
- Adopt slow building principles.
- Be full of delight.

This home should be designed to be extremely robust and resilient and to last until at least the end of the century through an age of increasingly extreme weather events and rising energy prices.

The house should be around 120 m2 sitting on a plot of 200m2 and be comfortable all year round. You should consider carefully every aspect of energy use in the house.

Reduce the need for energy use:
- Heating and cooling: consider form, orientation, mass, insulation and adaptation to climate
- Building fabric: low impact, healthy, robust materials and construction. 
- Lighting: year round natural day-lighting without over heating
- Ventilation: explore natural methods in relation to form and mass
- Orientation: maximise the potential of the site and design for renewable energy use
- Technologies: appropriate and low energy where necessary.
- Energy: renewable where possible and use your own.
- Lifestyles: Design for a way of life that conserves natural resources and creates a delightful lifestyle.

Energy in the building :
- Conserve: Air leakage through the building fabric may mean valuable heat escapes in cooler climates.
- Re-use: heat/coolness recovery systems.
- Store: heat/coolness can be stored in diurnal or annual storage systems for use when you need it eg. in passive solar systems and ground source heating and cooling. Use ‘load shifting’ to maximise use of your own energy by matching supply and demand times.
- Recycle: Photovoltaic and solar thermal systems can create energy sources that can be used for secondary heating systems, eg. Through mass or warm air management in the building.
- Wind capture: Don’t forget that the wind provides a renewable energy source too for cooling or perhaps energy generation.

Calculate the Carbon Dioxide Emissions for the house over the year:
- Define the boundary and the floor area of the premises/house (that is, all the buildings on the property).
- Measure the flows of each energy supply across the defined boundary. Normally this will be annual totals by fuel, though details of load profiles could sometimes be included. This can be calculated on a simple spreadsheet for winter and summer to show how many appliances will be using energy at each time of the day for the two seasons and then average the totals up over the year.
- Define carbon dioxide factors for each energy supply, that is how much carbon is contained in each kWh of a fuel type
- Multiply each energy flow by the appropriate carbon dioxide factor, to get the emissions associated with each fuel.
- Add them up to get the annual total of CO2 emissions for the house.

First Prize: 2.000 Pounds
Second Prize: 1.000 Pounds
Third Prize: 500 Pounds

Entry should be on 2 x A1 sheets which use clear graphics to illustrate the benefits of your design. Include a short illustration of the following using diagrams where possible: Please include the following using diagrams where possible:
- A statement of concepts which can include dreams and precedents.
- An analysis of the climate you are building in describing local aspects of temperature, wind and water resources. 
- An analysis of the site in terms of benefits of orientation, topography and ground
conditions shown on the sheets.
- A review of any local sources of materials and energy production
- A statement of the main design strategies for the design in terms of the reduction of energy use. Consider these under requirements for heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, water usage, occupiers'' needs.
- A description of how this house could be replicated to form an urban community.
- A series of drawings, sketches, images, photos of models etc that illustrate spaces in use and their delight.

All Entries will be received by 24 June 2008. Judging will take place in early July and winners notified within 3 working days. Winning and highly commended candidates will be invited to a prizegiving which will take place at the Oxford Conference: Resetting the Agenda for Architectural Education 22 - 23 July 2008.

Registration is compulsory. Any entry received without registration or arriving after the closing dates will not be judged.

The entries submitted by competitors or teams of competitors must be made up of:
- A maximum of two A1-format panels (width: 594mm x height: 840mm) mounted on flat, stiff, strong backings. These must be laid out vertically (portrait) and numbered one and two.

- An envelope containing a digital copy of each submitted panel in TIF, Jpeg or PDF formats; 300 dpi on original panel size (A1) and in the original layout of the submitted panels. Each envelope should be labelled with the name of the entrant(s).
