This project aimed to provide guidance to its sponsor-the construction and housing manager at a small kibbutz community in the Negev Desert in Israel-on the factors of housing construction that influence thermal performance of their desert houses. This project examined the trends that should be present in houses specific to the region and compared to them to actual temperature and humidity values. This project was also an International and Global Studies MQP that involved extensive journaling throughout the experience abroad. This project analyzed these journal entries in order to examine the community's values and involved the creation of a short film.
