This goal is manifest in Solar Decathlon 2013 Stevens’ approach to Learning House. The team is addressing sustainability in all facets of its house—from form, through construction, and in the dynamics of its use. It is approaching the design of the Learning House as an engineered “system of systems” with embedded intelligence at the core.

The Learning House is a residential prototype no longer built by traditional methods or driven by the limitations of a template. It will evolve over time and adapt to its users and their lifestyles.

This year’s Solar Decathlon 2013 competition will take place Oct. 3–13, 2013, at Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. Open to the public and free of charge, the Solar Decathlon gives visitors the opportunity to tour the houses, gather ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help them save money today.

Good luck to the Solar Decathlon 2013 Stevens Institute of Technology team.
