Vienna University of Technology and their LISI House wooed judges and visitors alike to grab the prime prize at U.S. Division of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013. The prestigious occasion saw a photo-finish of sorts with Team Austria beating University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) by mere 4.35 points. Contemplating that the teams are judged out of a total 1000 points spread across a variety of facets of sustainable style like power production, efficiency, ergonomics and actual globe appeal, the margin for error is indeed pretty tiny. Rounding off the podium finishers is the Czech Technical University that completed an agonizing 2.43 points behind UNLV!
Those who did stick to our preview of the best green houses at Solar Decathlon 2013 will don’;t forget that we did have all the 3 teams pegged as frontrunners to watch out for at the event. Taking into consideration the margin of the victories, it goes unsaid that the genuine winner at the event was well and genuinely clean-energy housing that also carries along with it a fashionable modern day approach and contemporary elegance. LISI from Group Austria showcased this with its ultra-modern design and style, intelligent use of solar power, a modern day kitchen, beautiful patio and an eye-catching outside vertical garden.
If there is 1 actually universal design at the Solar Decathlon, then LISI would almost certainly be it. It reminds us of efficient Scandinavian design and style elegance and ergonomics wrapped together with style. A truly international design, LISI is like that best blank canvas that is ready to be filled with your own distinct decor!
Team Austria’s beautiful use of wood as a sustainable constructing material along with the revolutionary green additions definitely turned the tide in its favor over other favorites like Stanford University and CTU that had been in the lead early on. University of North Carolina backed the People’s Selection Award, as the event showcased how planet-friendly design is not only power-efficient, but also appealing and affordable.
And as the sun sets on this year’s Solar Decathlon, we are convinced that a new dawn awaits gorgeous eco-friendly homes in the coming decade!
