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.
Virginia Tech’s Lumenhaus, i.e. the Solar House, will be on the move tomorrow morning. Albert and I will be there with video camera in hand to get some video, which we will then post here on the blog, in high definition I might ad.
The Solar House will be moved to the shopping center across from Gables on South Main Street to be put on display before heading to Washington, D.C., to be put on public display on the National Mall.
