IBU proposal - component diagram

An exploded view begins to explain the components of the structure. I've begun working on this again because I am preparing drawings for an idea competition. I am working with a team of others that are bringing various areas of expertise to the table. The effort was organized by Jeff Rous, a LiveModern member who originally proposed the use of IBUs for student housing. I am creating 3 drawing panels that will explain the structure and how the construction system works. This is a diagram that will appear in the presentation which shows the component parts that make up the larger building. This also points the way for how I will propose building houses from the system. I am still a little ways off from fleshing that out, but working through the presentation of this multi unit proposal is a big step forward. Since spreading the idea is the reason for doing this, I'll be posting the drawing panels here when they are done.

  1. Greg,

    When I assemble the pieces in my mind's eye I really like what I see. Especially the combination of solar and wind power. I love it. Keep up the great work, especially with IBUs. That's very exciting stuff and the area that most interests me as a homeowner planning to (someday not too far off) build a modern, green home for my family. Cool stuff. Thanks.
