Architecture Students Competing to Design/Build Tiny Solar Homes

Jeff Dahl and I attended the 2005 Solar Decathlon.  It has been one of the most exciting things going in residential design... super-small 600 sq. ft. homes, each one a jewel of creativity and efficiency.  The competition inspires truly beautiful, energy-efficient, eco-friendly designs.
This year, all of the teams' have prepared conceptual models and virtual walk-throughs, which are online prior to the event.  See link.
