Stemming from a design competition, the perFORM[D]ance House became a reality with its selection to participate in the 2011 Solar Decathlon along 19 other institutions. The home was assembled then disassembled, transported to West Potamax Park in Washington D.C. for the competition, then re-assembled in a matter of days for judging on 10 points of sustainability!

As lead Landscape Designer during the design phase, I worked with Landscape Architecture students, Andres Pineda and Alejandro Perez, and collaborated with the Architecture students responsible for the design of the home to produce in collaboration a product that would be self-sustaining and function cohesively within our South Florida climate. As mentioned above, this effort was awarded with an invitation to our National Mall to build our vision and compete with 19 other institutions.
