ROW HOUSES

 
 

ROW HOUSE NO. 1

2019-2020

Project Architect and General Contractor:

Mary Hardin

Graduate Teaching Assistant:

Maryam Moradnejad

Description:

Stadium Rowhouse #1 is the first in a series of five rowhouses on the southern edge of the University of Arizona campus, meant to serve as a visual buffer between the Rincon Heights neighborhood to the south and the UA parking garage to the north. This residence houses the UA Emergency Medical Services team (medical students who serve as the campus first responders).

Continuing the research agenda of previous DDBC residences, this project has thermal sensors embedded in the west wall assembly to measure the thermal transfer through a unique layering of exterior air cavity and insulation. One full year of data will be collected and analyzed to understand the efficacy of this energy conservation strategy.
