V Invest holds student competition for Green District
The Czech residential developer V Invest has organized a country-wide competition called Green District among university students. Czech and Slovak students are being challenged to propose designs for a residential project on 4.4 ha plot of land in Nová Valcha near Pilsen that produces more than half of its own electricity. Entries should also propose how to save water (including rain and drinking water) and to reduce the heating effect that projects tend to have on their surroundings. The goal of the competition is to generate ideas that V Invest could use in future projects. "That's why we wanted students to work from real project materials and to propose complete solutions. The competition brief is extremely demanding but that's the reality of our sector," said V Invest partner and director Jaroslav Vondřička.
