Hyperloop Desert Campus
Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
From ground up, the new Hyperloop Dessert Campus rises over the desert landscape as a landmark that stares into the future. The rising movement of the rooftop allows the building to shelter the multiple facilities of the Hyperloop Headquarters.
The project unfolds the dry desert ground to create a shaded space, which is also protected from the area's harsh weather. To do so, it uses several bio-climate strategies that work sustainably with the surroundings, making the campus as eco-friendly as possible. Taking advantage of the level changes to lower temperatures during the day, and keeping it during the night, the overall energy spent is kept to the minimum. Furthermore, the building is equipped with a wide surface of solar panels, that supplies electricity to the building.
