The results of the 2011 Solar Decathlon have just been announced, and the winner is University of Maryland WaterShed house! The beautiful water-conservation themed house has been leading the competition pretty much since the first day that the Solar Decathlon kicked off, taking first place in the architecture contest and scoring in the top five in almost every contest; from engineering to communications. The WaterShed Home, which was inspired by the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, has been battling it out with 18 other eco-friendly prefab homes built by collegiate architecture & engineering teams on the National Mall for the biennial design-build competition to see who can build the best solar-powered home. While harnessing the sun’s energy is obviously the highlight of the Solar Decathlon, the uniqui WaterShed House design also focused heavily on water usage, a characteristic that no doubt helped it win first place in this esteemed competition.
