Solar Decathlon Results!

Source: 

The 2013 Solar Decathlon competition has ended, and the results have been tallied. Our very own USC fluxHome came in at an amazing third place in the architecture category, behind schools from Czech and New Jersey. 

 

From the LA Times: "Third place went to USC, whose fluxHome is designed to create an indoor-outdoor space without resorting to epic walls of glass. Doors positioned to capture breezes and cross-ventilate the house are complemented by a large, central skylight that keeps interiors bright and airy without overexposing residents to neighbors or traffic -- a key concern in densely built urban settings."
