The Solar Decathlon is a design-build competition that pits engineering and architecture college teams against each other to see who can build the most energy-efficient solar house. Considering that German teams have triumphed at the U.S. Solar Decathlon for three years running now, this is a big deal and a great victory for the Virginia Tech team, who competed with the same house in last year's competition and were beaten out by a German team in 2009."

  • I've seen cement block U-Rent storage sheds that were easier on the eye than this.
    • The pictures (especially on the front page of that article) don't do it justice. You should see it at [vt.edu] night [flickr.com].

      Although I do understand that not everyone appreciates cold/modern design as I do.

      • Looking at only the picture on the front of that article, though, I agree that it doesn't look as great during the daytime, but I think the way it looks at night makes up for what it's lacking during the day.

Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of science.
