Peralta News: The Wedge

3 February 2017

Peralta_News_Temp

‘The Wedge’ embodies net-zero design philosophies, meaning it generates all the energy it needs on site. By its nature, the design is also a living model of the various aspects of Zero Waste: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot. Its small footprint makes it easy to place on the small and odd-shaped lots common to cities, and being on wheels, it can be easily relocated as required to respond to changing needs. The fresh- and gray-water systems respond to the environmental challenges of living in California where every drop of water is precious and must be used, reclaimed and reused to the fullest extent. “The Wedge” is Laney College’s entry into the SMUD Net Zero Tiny House Competition, which took place in October of 2016 and rewarded $4000 as the winner of the Architecture category for their entry. Laney Carpentry students also won 4 other categories: Best Design, Best Furnishings, Best Landscaping and Best Video.
