Solar Decathlon 2011: Team Tennessee

Photos by Michelle Kaufmann

Michelle Kaufmann is judging this year's Solar Decathlon and here are some of the photos she took of the Team Tennessee house at the National Mall's West Potomac Park.

Tennessee seeks to apply global technologies to local contexts. To find the most refined aesthetic expression of these technologies, the team integrated multiple complex systems into relatively few architectural elements. The Living Light design uses passive systems where appropriate and active systems where necessary. The team also used off-the-shelf technologies in innovative ways to meet the needs of today's homeowner.
