Meta-innovation through project management to design Net Zero Energy Buildings TDART project as a case study

Jihane Abdessadak


Current day technology is more than sufficient to build market competitive net-zero energy houses and buildings through the right legislation and policies. While most current households consume significant amounts of energy, they are the result of human heritage and collective knowledge concerning domestic life and family organization.  

Which is why ignoring current and old home design and construction strategies would be a missed opportunity; even for radically different and novel approaches.
Named after the Amazigh word for "home", TDART aims to integrate local design strategies with modern technology to build the next
generation of energy-efficient homes.

"Modern technology" referring not only to modern solutions and systems but to novel approaches inspired by scientific literature concerning construction, architecture, HVAC, etc.
