Welcome to reACT
reACT, adapt, respond
reACT is an innovative building system designed to adapt and respond to diverse communities and ecosystems. Team Maryland created Resilient Adaptive Climate Technology to showcase how a sustainable future is more than just designing a better built home; it is a lifestyle system that incorporates a home with its surrounding environment, interacts with its occupants, and strives to give back more than it takes. This lifestyle system is supported by regeneratively mindful innovations that can be seen and explored throughout reACT communications. A modular ‘kit-of-parts’ home is the base of reACT as a lifestyle system. The ability to customize a home to adapt to the occupant’s unique needs is complimented by the technologies and innovations that increase energy efficiency, power generation, comfort, self-reliance, and overall enhance sustainable living.
Team Maryland was ranked as the top US University Team for the 3rd time in a row.
