Welcome to the site of Team Israel, Solar Decathlon China 2013

Team Israel is made up of students from 4 leading colleges and universities in Israel, incorporating future architects, engineers, and designers.

We are proud to represent Israel in this Solar Decathlon competition.

Our design agenda reflects Israel's dynamic culture, social values and sun-blessed climate. Our point of departure for this project is to design a home that not only meets the requirements of the competition but begins to tackle some of the issues currently associated with housing in Israel. We've planned a net-zero, comfortable, safe, functional and relaxing house for a middle-aged to elderly couple or a young family given the expansion option available. It is a house that maintains the essence of an Israeli home while dramatically improving both health conditions and energy efficiency.
