Lumenhaus is Virginia Tech’s 2009 entry to the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition. The 800 sq. ft. zero-energy house is completely powered by the sun delivers a brighter way to live, literally and figuratively. Lumenhaus responds to the seasons, weather, and light. It is currently being built, and you can watch the progress and find out more on their website.

I think they’ve got a winner!
