Unit Title: Energy Efficient House Design
Branch: Duration: Information 5 /6 weeks / 3D Computer Aided Design Significant Conce!t: 8se a range of Te hnology to propose an .nvironmentally 9riendly :ow .nergy 8se house that balan es the needs of a family and energy effi ient house design

"rea of Interaction: .nvironments3 +ow we live has an impa t on the environment% how to lessen that impa t!

#Y$ Unit %uestion: +ow an I resear h design and animate a 3D Computer Aided Design model of an energy effi ient house/

Design Conte t:
The survival of our planet earth is largely going to be determined by what happens in our ities! "y #$5$% &$' of the world(s population will live in them! )e are observing a mass migration to ities at an unpre edented rate! The growing urbani*ation pla es high demands on infrastru ture su h as transportation and building as well as in reased demand for resour es su h as food% water% and energy! +ow we plan and design the built environment will determine whether limate hange is manageable or atastrophi ! +ouse design needs to onsider renewable energy and self suffi ien y to use less energy! ,any ountries have laws that spe ify energy effi ient re-uirements of new houses! .nergy effi ient house design has the dual benefit of redu ing green house gas emissions and saving money on energy bills! +ow an new design features ombine with the general housing needs/
