This collaboration was a partnership of University, City and County with the collective goal of designing and constructing five (5) prototypical, sustainable, low cost residences.  The parcel was deeded to a university-based, non-profit design and development team by the City of Tucson Housing and Community Development Department and competitive grants and bonds provided funds for project development.  Goals were to provide affordable housing while creating replicable prototypes that achieve substantial  savings in energy and water usage.

The practices employed in the design of these units were drafted into a set of Design Guidelines for Energy Conserving Affordable Housing.  The impact of these guidelines on a regional level would far transcend the benefit of the individual units.  The City received ownership of the permitted plan sets to be disseminated for public use by all other builders and developers to encourage environmentally responsibile home building.
