Founder & CEO, Alquist 3D and Atlas Community Studios USA
Zack grew up in rural southeastern PA. Armed with degrees in Theater and Philosophy from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, he had zero job prospects, so he moved to London to pursue theater. Two years later his visa expired, and he did what every other American theater major does he moved to NYC. Zack spent 8 years in Brooklyn running theater companies and working in restaurants to determine that NYC didn’t need another theater or restaurant, and he looked around to see that he was in a homogeneous bubble. Knowing there were many people who thought differently than he did, he went on a 22-city road trip across America over the summer of 2007 and settled in Des Moines, IA. Knowing no one in Iowa, Zack got to work meeting as many artists as he could in order to found the Des Moines Social Club in 2009, a non-profit arts and education center that hosted thousands of arts related events. In 2020, Zack, along with his partners, created Atlas Community Studios, a placemaking and economic development group working in 25+ states. Zack founded Alquist 3D at the same time in order to solve the rural housing crisis. Alquist 3D is printing affordable housing across the nation, starting with the first owner-occupied 3D home in the world in Virginia. He serves on the boards of Iowa Public Radio and the Iowa Rural Development Council. He lives with his wife Sarah and their three kids Mira, Benjamin, and Fiona in Iowa City. Zack is an Opinion Contributor for The Hill and his work has been written about in the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC News, CBS Evening News, Axios, Time Magazine, Architecture Digest, The Independent, Politico, The Atlantic, and dozens of community publications. Zack loves exploring rural communities, producing new pieces of theater, creating restaurant concepts, and has an unhealthy passion for the Philadelphia Eagles.

University of BirminghamUK
AL-DADAH, Raya (F) is a reader in sustainable energy technologies in the School of Engineering at the University of Birmingham. She was awarded BSc in Mechanical Engineering in 1985 and PhD in Electrohydrodynamic enhancement of boiling heat transfer in 1994. She took lectureship position at UoB in 1995, promoted to senior lecturer in 2014 and to a reader in 2019. She has more than 25 years research experience in sustainable and clean energy systems for various applications including heating, cooling, electricity generation and water desalination / treatment. She is a fellow of the Institute of Refrigeration, fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and member of the Higher Education Academy (UK). She has researched and supervised research projects and published over 150 papers in reputable journals and international conferences with H index of over 30. She is a member of several research groups in UK including “Sustainable Innovations in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating” (SIRACH) and “Sustainable Thermal Energy Management” (SusTEM)). Dr. AL-Dadah is a member of the Birmingham Energy Institute (BEI) with access to the institute research facilities. She has the following research interests: Heat powered adsorption heat pumps for energy storage, cooling, heating, power generation and water desalination using advanced adsorbent materials namely Metal Organic Framework (MOF). Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are meso-porous materials with exceptionally high porosity, well-defined molecular adsorption sites, large surface area (up to 5500m2/g compared to 1000 m2/g for silica gel) and superior water uptake capacity (up to 1.5kg/kg). As MOFs structures can be constructed with a diversity of metal clusters/ions and organic components to generate porous materials with high surface area, they possess more advantages to tune their properties via structure design. Moreover, the modification of MOFs via functionalisation or post-synthetic modification could offer routes to enhance their properties for heat storage. With more than £3M funding from DECC (HS28), British Council, Innovate UK and EPSRC and Qatar National Research Foundation she developed a number of MOF materials and small-scale prototypes of adsorption heat pumps for energy storage, heating, cooling and water desalination. With funding from the department of energy and climate change (DECC, now called BEIS), Dr. AL-Dadah developed an adsorption energy storage system to store the off-peak, cheap night time electricity to be recovered for heating of domestic houses during the day. Harnessing solar energy: Developing efficient methods of harnessing solar energy based on concentrated Photovoltaic cells (silicon cells as well as multi-junction cells) for both electricity and heat energy production (PVT and CPVT). The research involved integrating concentrated PV cells with heat powered thermodynamic systems like Organic Rankine Cycle for additional electricity generation and adsorption systems for cooling and water desalination.
