Global Voice Speaker Series: “The Solar Decathlon”
Global Voice returns to the Ocean Explorium on Wednesday, April 9th with a presentation from the BROWN/RISD/Erfurt team.
They will be presenting their design for an Energy-Efficient home, Techstyle Haus. This design will be entered into an international competition this summer at Versailles (fittingly, the home of Louis XIV, the “Sun King” of France!)
From a Brown University article about the competition which you can view HERE:
“Techstyle Haus is the brainchild of students from Brown, RISD, and the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt in Germany and will be one of only two entries by a U.S.-based team in the 2014 Solar Decathlon Europe. The international competition pits 20 teams against each other in 10 challenges to see who can build the most energy-efficient, innovative, and livable solar house.”
