The team, made up of students at Brown, RISD, and the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt in Germany will be one of only two U.S.entries in this international competition, pitting 20 teams against each other in 10 challenges to find the most energy-efficient, innovative, and livable solar house! The Brown/RISD/Erfurt Team will be presenting their entry ‘Techstyle Haus’ for the Solar Decathlon taking place in Versailles (fittingly, the home of Louis XIV, the “Sun King” of France)!
