Satisfy All Your Needs, No Matter Who You Are.
The Team Transdisciplinary Design Innovation Shop (Team TDIS) from National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) was selected as one of the 18 teams in the “Solar Decathlon Europe 2021”
around the world. It is also the only team from Taiwan. The competition started in October 2019 and is expected to go to Wuppertal, Germany in 2022.
The theme of the competition is “urban”, the field with gradual increase in population. To respond to the three observed topics: overcrowded, climate crisis and separate society, Team
TDIS has developed “party core wall” for space efficient living, “equality skin” to promote sustainable living and “civic plate” for neighborhood life support. The above concepts are based
on design thinking of circular and universal. “One House For All” is aimed to provide a modular universal and sustainable house that can meet all the needs for everyone.
“TDIS is not only a Think Tank, but also a Do Tank!”
— C. David Tseng, the faculty advisor of Team TDIS
The urban issues that One House For All is trying to solve are not only the problems faced by Taipei and Taiwan, but also the huge issues that the world is facing. In addition, the population
structure in cities covers all age groups and occupations, and everyone has different needs and lifestyles. The motivation of Team TDIS to participate in SDE21 is that taking this opportunity to
communicate with society and arouse social awareness through the design of our project. It is hoped that through the ” circular and universal design”, One House For All will become a greener
living solution for everyone.
Team TDIS is under the supervision of faculty advisor C. David Tseng, and led by the project manager (the student leader of SDE2014 Team TDIS) Sheng-Kai Tseng. 45 student members
are gathered from 17 areas of expertise. Students are divided into five professional groups: Architecture & Urban Design, Engineering & Construction, Innovation, CESA (Communication,
Education, Social Awareness), Site Operation & Health and Safety. All members are working together with their creativity, specialty and willpower to complete 10 contests of the decathlon
