Thank you for your contest submission!
The Judges feel that your proposal rests on two things : (a) buildings can cut carbon emissions at zero ro negative costs; and (b) a prominent demonstration of (a) can help build momentum. The proposal could do better to further the first point rather than counting on its general acceptance. However, all the best in your effort to get institutional support from MIT to get on the track to net-zero emissions as soon as possible.
Thank you for your submission to the Climate CoLab. This is an interesting idea which has potential but requires more thorough work on budget estimates and some technical details.
The Judges would benefit from further description of the financial feasibility and policy strategy. In addition, clearer geographic focus would be beneficial.

Thank you for your feedback. We have added a "Foreword" addressing administrative issues and the proposal's genesis, plus additions to the "Imperative" and "New Thinking Required" sections. Other sections were also edited for clarity for the "public" round, tuned for accuracy, and emphasis added for novel aspects of the proposal.
Thank you for your consideration of our proposal! We apologize for having to truncate the plan to fit this competition's main body 12K character limit, and we do understand that is a mark against us. But, the "New Thinking Required" section does layout all the pertinent information short of the MIT site specific implementation details and site related Research. Those would only fit in the much larger "What actions do you propose?" section in the "MIT Climate Mitigation Solutions 2016" contest (30K characters).
