About our lab building
UrbSys Lab is located in Solar Decathlon House, a net-positive building, that was designed in 2010; re-built in Gainesville in 2014. The project was led by Prof. Robert Ries. The house is 797-square-feet, and includes elements from historic Florida houses such as the North Florida vernacular Cracker House. Some of the borrowed elements include a covered open porch, a breezeway or “dog trot” oriented to the prevailing wind and a porous, breathable building skin.
For high-speed computing, we use University of Florida’s high performance computing network, HiPerGator, that operates and supports the large-scale computing systems and data storage facilities for the benefit of the UF research community. HiPerGator has 23,000+ cores, 4+ Petabytes of storage 200+ Gigabit per second to the Campus Research Network. All of the processors available on HiPerGator are homogenous in terms of instruction set and support the 64-bit extensions to the Intel X86 instruction set architecture (X86_64).
