This is a proposal for an affordable home in Wharton, Texas. It employs the design engineering of an Ecobalance Home typology that aims to balance the sourcing and resourcing of energy, water and food. Both employ high levels of integration and open building system protocols with multi-use components. The design involves climate modeling and FEA analysis for a 200-mile/hr winds.
The system incorporates different alternatives for balance of food, water and energy. Community level integration of this building system starts to show excess sourcing of resources like energy, food and water from one building which is used by others deficit in the same.
