Design Program / Goals for Our Project

Point of View Statement

Enter a refined POV statement that succinctly describes the essential user needs that you're designing a solution to provide. This will likely be based on your earlier POV statements, but may have evolved and updated based on your continued exploration and refining of your understanding of the problems throughout the Ideating phase of the design thinking process.

Design Program / Goals

The design goals that our team has chosen to target as we address the needs that we've identified include:

  • Harnessing Wind, Sand Storm, and Solar Energy
    • Measured by how much energy is harnessed
    • 15% wind and sandstorm energy provided, and 50% solar
  • Adaptable Exterior for Temperature Regulation
    • Measured by how much the regular heating/cooling system is used
    • Use of air conditioning reduced by 20%
  • Water Collection and Purifying System (under platform)
    • Measured by the amount of water used from the reservoir
    • 20% of water used in household comes from the purifying system
