The Mapdwell Project is a collaborative effort by researchers, academics, and professionals at MIT to develop a community resource of research-driven and tested information on sustainable practices. The Sustainable Design Lab at MIT collaborated with design studio MoDE (Modern Development Studio) to create a user-friendly interface that makes complex data simple and easy to understand. The fundamental goal of Mapdwell is to deliver a tool that enables communities to make informed decisions about how to incorporate sustainable technologies like solar power into their lifestyles through community awareness and access to information about energy efficiency and smart development.
