InnoNativo

The project InnoNativo is a mostly student-run project participating at the Solar Decathlon Latin America & Caribbean 2019, which is a competition in designing and building energetically self-sufficient houses. The Universidad de la Salle in Bogotá, Colombia, and the Technische Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe in Detmold, Germany, work together as the InnoNativo team, consisting of around 40 students and four supervisors, at its house since September 2017, intending to create a house that is able to connect both tradition and innovation in order to improve the lives of conventional Latin American people.

Solar Decathlon

Originally created was the Solar Decathlon competition by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2002 and then expanded into regions all over the world to build houses that concentrate on the specific climatic conditions in each region. The Solar Decathlon Latin America & Carribean looks for affordable and energy-efficient solutions for social housing in tropical regions. The second SDLAC will take place in November/December in Santiago de Calí in Colombia, where the teams have two weeks to assemble their houses which will be judged in ten different categories like Architecture, Energy Efficiency, Engineering, Communication, Innovation and Affordability.

Sustainability

InnoNativo intends to optimize the use of resources and reduce the environmental footprint of the house significantly. That implies the use of traditional construction methods with light, renewable materials, like the natural fibers Junco and Jute, as well as contemporary methods with recycling materials. One main goal is to enable the inhabitants to build and change as many elements of the house as possible on their own. To improve the quality of life of the Latin American community and the immediate environment we are also using alternative systems like photovoltaic cells that assure innovation, sustainability and the improvement of housing from an architectural perspective.

Possibilities

The planned location of assembly is the seaport city Buenaventura on the west side of Colombia, which is presumed to be a problematic area in terms of quality of life of her citizens. The InnoNativo house is especially designed for the climatic conditions, sustainable and adaptable for the social needs of this area. With variable rooms, flexible interior and unconventional materials, replications on small ground and adaptions to the socio-economic and spatial requirements of the inhabitants and the environment are ensured.
