The Texas Ranch House and the Texas Underground

The Texas Underground house is the product of a research-based design project for Michael Fifield’s Housing Prototypes course. In this paper, I research Texas housing types of the past which featured passive cooling systems, I then synthesize this data into a proposal for the passively cooled Texas house of the future. This paper is presented in PDF format and can be downloaded below.

The Texas Underground

Below are a few process diagrams that contributed to the final Texas underground archetype.

    Just ingenious — I’m impressed. Incidentally, J.W. Bass was born in a home similar to your second process diagram.
