Designing an Eco Friendly House With Minecraft

Students use the mod minecraft world http://services.minecraftedu.com/worlds/node/141 to design a 6m by 6m house that displays sustainable features, that they will then make into a real life model out of  recycled materials- maximum floor area of model 360cm squared  ie. equivalent to 60cm by 60cm, but can be any shape.

Your house needs to consider solar aspect, size windows, eaves, energy, shading (can have up to 20m square additional outdoor living space), ventilation, water collection, shape, aesthetics, efficiency. So, do not choose an auto populate method.
