Let the Sun Shine InHow Team Massachusetts is building a 4D home completely powered by the sun for the U.S. Solar Decathlon
Spencer Culhane and Julianne Rhodes, students from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and UMass Lowell, are competing as two of the members of Team Massachusetts in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathalon. They underscore the importance of collaboration by uniting architecture and engineering to uncover creative solutions to the inefficient heating and the impractical space occupancy of a typical American home.
Curator’s Pick: “Most often in architecture school you do get to build the things that you design, but they’re at 1/40th of their actual scale. For a group of us this just wasn’t enough. We wanted to do something more, something bigger, something real.”
