CALIFORNIA COLLEGE OF THE ARTS ARCHITECTURE STUDIO SERIES

Refract House

California College of the Arts Architecture Studio Series

Edited by Ila Berman, Nataly Gattegno. Introduction by Ila Berman.

Refract House explores the evolution of California College of the Arts’ solar-powered house that competed in the 2009 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The competition brief was to design, build and operate a maximally energy-efficient, attractive and comfortable solar-powered house. Every detail was considered by the CCA faculty and student team, from the landscaping, water recycling system and solar collection arrays to the furniture and plateware. CCA’s house was awarded first place in architecture and communications, second in engineering, and third overall. This book reframes the team’s efforts within contemporary architectural practice. It is divided into four parts, addressing: the conceptual trajectories underlying the project, the different design strategies that were explored, the integration of technological systems and the question of carbon-neutral design, and the issues surrounding material prefabrication. It also discusses the implications of the project in terms of architectural education today.
