For the 2023-2024 academic year, Third Quadrant Design operated under a completely new leadership team. Vancouver Special 2.0 was our new team's first submission to the Solar Decathlon Design Challenge. 

In response to the housing crisis, we proposed a densification project. Our submission involved retrofitting one instance of the iconic Vancouver Special, and converting it into 4 separate units. We envisioned this idea being replicated across the city, providing more equitable and sustainable housing in Vancouver.  

In April we sent 6 of our team leads to Colorado to participate in the finals, where they came in third place in the attached housing division.
