Global Green USA Sustainable Housing Design Competition

​Eskew+Dumez+Ripple designed a sustainable housing prototype for “The Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans – Advancing the Sustainable Rebuilding of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast” sponsored by Global Green USA. The studio was among six finalists in this national “green building” competition to design environmentally-friendly housing in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward. The project demonstrates how green building and intelligent architecture can come together in an innovative way, while also respecting the historical context of New Orleans’ neighborhoods. Major project programmatic components included 18 housing units, a daycare and a community center, all designed to meet LEED Platinum standards. The project was also designed to achieve a net-zero energy use by harvesting energy on-site from wind turbines, river turbines and solar panels.
