The host University in 2008 was the University of Zagreb, which also provided the partner company Tehnix. The task was to develop an eco-friendly holiday home, with the main focus on solar energy and container constructions. The 2008 course was different in the sense that the partner company actually provided a prototype and the student teams spent a day in the prototype home testing it and providing suggestions for future developments. The student team’s concepts, on which they worked from February onwards, were presented in the form of CAD models and poster presentations. The workshop was held at the company location in Donji Kraljevac, which provided excellent opportunity for the students to get to know the country side of the host.
