National Building Museum Features Solar Decathlon Exhibition

Monday, May 10, 2010

On May 1, the National Building Museum opened U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 Finalists: A Special Presentation. The exhibition features models of conceptual designs for solar-powered houses from the 20 collegiate teams competing in Solar Decathlon 2011. From now until the event opens on the National Mall in fall 2011, teams will transform these ideas into solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.

Located just off the Museum’s Great Hall in the First Floor Galleries, the exhibition is designed to represent the houses on the National Mall and their relationship to the sun. To accomplish this, the models are arranged just as the houses will be constructed along Solar Decathlon’s Decathlete Way, and a set of gold dots across the gallery walls and ceiling represents the sun’s path when Solar Decathlon 2011 begins.

For more information, see the National Building Museum’s U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 Finalists: A Special Presentation brochure (PDF 557 KB) and press release.
