Virginia Tech’s LUMENHAUS team recently won first place overall at the 2010 Solar Decathlon Europe. Last summer, we documented LUMENHAUS’ move from its production facility on Plantation Road in Blacksburg to the Gables Shopping Center parking lot where the team wrapped up construction before moving it to Washington, D.C., to be displayed to the public. From there it traveled to New York City’s Time Square.”
LUMENHAUS then traveled to Spain to compete in the 2010 Solar Decathlon Europe and won first place. Learn more at facebook.com/lumenhaus.
Recently, Virginia Tech’s Web site (www.vt.edu) featured a spotlight story about architecture professor Dennis Jones and his Quantum Matric program that organizes content into a three-dimensional computerized cube.
Last summer, we shot some video of Virginia Tech’s LUMENHAUS, or Solar House, project. While at the facility where the house was being built, we shot some video of Jones and his system, which was used to organize content and create a 3D model of LUMENHAUS. Now, we obviously can’t display what they saw in 3D, but this video shows a little of the behind-the-scenes stuff that went on. See our original LUMENHAUS video: vimeo.com/5995091
