Woodbury University School of Architecture is an awardee of the United States Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Build Challenge! The WSOA has been awarded 50K in seed funding to build the first permitted 3D printed dwelling in Los Angeles and must raise funds for the remainder of the construction cost.

Supporting Solar Futures: Where Sustainability Meets Efficiency

Our team was awarded seed funding to build its winning concept — the first permitted 3D-printed, low-carbon, micro-living dwelling in Los Angeles — and we are now raising funds to cover the remainder of the construction cost. The future hope for this project is that it will expand knowledge and create awareness about the challenges, technologies, and solutions needed to bring us all closer to sustainable housing solutions by addressing two of the most vexing crises facing humans across the globe today: housing insecurity and global warming. Read more about the project.

Contribute to Woodbury Universities Solar Futures House and join a community of advocates addressing housing insecurity and environmental justice in Southern California. The Solar Futures House is a student led design-build micro living unit under construction on the Woodbury campus in Burbank. This net-zero home was constructed using 3D printing technology and features a gray water recycling system, fire resistant insulation, a rainwater harvesting system, and an innovative concrete mix that results in increased material sustainability. The project is 80% complete. We are seeking donations to finance the remaining items such as landscaping, hardscaping, and interior finishes. Let us put your money to work solving some of the biggest issues of our time. Together we are making a difference!
