After winning the architecture contest, the University of Maryland team has vaulted into the lead of the Solar Decathlon at the National Mall. The competition concludes on Saturday, with the houses open to the public through Sunday. “WaterShed achieves an elegant mix of inspiration, function, and simplicity. It takes our current greatest challenges in the built environment—energy and water—and transforms them into opportunities for spatial beauty and poetry while maintaining livability in every square inch,” said Architecture Contest Juror Michelle Kaufmann.
