“Wowing jurors with its attention to detail, craftsmanship, and an unusual energy visualization system,” New Zealand (Victoria University of Wellington) received first place Thursday in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 Engineering Contest for its First Light house. “The New Zealand house was beautifully executed, with extreme attention to detail and craftsmanship and an intuitive tree-ring visualization system, which makes it easy to understand energy use throughout the house,” said Engineering Contest juror Dr. Hunter Fanney, chief of the building energy and environment division of the engineering laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The University of Maryland has maintained the overall lead.
