Eight student teams have been shortlisted for the 2012 Saint-Gobain Isover Architectural Student Design Competition in UK level. This year's competition challenged students to create a sustainable community living plan for around 12 to 15 families, located in Nottingham's Trent Basin at the border between the city and the industrial zone. The development must be designed in accordance with Saint-Gobain Isover Multi-Comfort principles, encompassing Passivehaus components.
Judging took place at Ecobuild 2012 (UK), the world's biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment and the UK's largest construction event of any kind, on March 21st. Models and drawings were displayed during this exhibition to visitors.
The three UK winning teams will go on to compete in the eight International Architectural Student Design Competition final, which takes place in Bratislava, Slovakia from 22th - 25th May 2012 and features a top price of 1500.00Euro.
