Geographical distances, logistic problems, and the absence of raw matter, industrial fabric, and know-how prevent many countries from adopting innovative, sustainable, “green” systems for high building quality. In order to disseminate these principles through the “colonization” of new markets, it is necessary to think how to export those systems that, although not locally fabricated, are considered green thanks to other sustainable features. The paper proposes a design method and a production/construction process for the “exportability of the system”. A hybrid system is proposed as an alternative to conventional construction models that are completely built on-site or prefabricated off-site. The experience of the Solar Decathlon Middle East is presented as case study for this design and build experimentation.
