LOW3 is prototype of sustainable housing that reduces calories intake and is made from renewable fabrics. It is being designed and constructed via scholars of the Universitat Politècnica of Catalunya (UPC)-Barcelona Tech School of Architecture of the Vallès (ETSAV)
A staff of 40 scholars from the School of Architecture of the Vallès (ETSAV), coordinated via the college, has embarked upon an journey. It has undertaken the problem of designing and development a prototype for a bioclimatic sun space, the LOW3 (low calories+low have an effect on+low price), a brand new idea in bioclimatic housing this is calories self-sufficient.
The aid of 3 factors-energy intake, environmental have an effect on all through its lifecycle and the price of the optimistic and technological answers applied-is the primary followed in all levels of the development’s building. The space, conceived at the premises of environmental and financial sustainability, integrates photovoltaic era in addition to sun thermal techniques and is made from sustainable, renewable fabrics the usage of easy, environment friendly techniques, they all cheap. This, along side the prime calories potency the house may have, will permit the target of finishing the fabric and water cycles to be met, insofar as conceivable. The building, according to prefabricated, versatile modular techniques, will facilitate the transformation, enlargement and reorganization of the housing area to conform it to the converting wishes of its occupants.
A mission like this one “combines teaching with applied research in a manner unique in the field of sustainable architecture,” explains Torsten Masseck, technical director of the LOW3 prototype.
