Ecohabit: Solar Decathlon

Irvine, California 

The Solar Decathlon is a biannual competition put on by the Department of Energy to design the most energy-efficient solar home with strict budget and building limits. The competition was open to teams from countries around the world including the Czech Republic, Canada and Austria. In this competition, CRAFT’s role was to take the student-led team from Stevens Institute of Technology through the process of design, analysis and detailing of the building structure. Their entry, Ecohabit, placed second overall in the United States and fourth overall in the world.
