perFORM 2015 COMPETITION
DESIGN A NET ZERO ENERGY, MIXED-USE BUILDING
The perFORM competition challenges architecture students and interns to explore the nexus between high performance building and high design. As a builder that partners with architecture firms on every project it builds, Hammer & Hand launched the competition to help advance the energy performance training of emerging design professionals and to demonstrate that performance and design are inherently complementary.
perFORM 2015, the second year of the competition, called for students and interns to design a net zero energy, mixed use, multifamily building for a site in the heart of Portland’s Eastside. Group and individual entries were judged based on the criteria of resourcefulness, replicability, and beauty.
A group submission by University of Cincinnati students Jon Lund, Narek Mirzaei, and Luis Sabater Musa won the $3000 first place award. Two runner-up winners, a group from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and an individual from California State Polytechnic University Pomona, will each receive a $1500 award.
