The Team

Team Israel is a group of students from 4 leading colleges and universities, incorporating future architects, engineers, and designers. We are proud to be the first Israeli team to participate in a Solar Decathlon competition. The group was led by Dr. Joseph Cory and Chen Shalita. 

Our design agenda is inspired by three main themes: the dynamism of Israeli culture and the local construction industry; the increasing prominence of social justice values on the public agenda; and the high solar power potential of our climate.

Participating in the competition is an opportunity for us to demonstrate professional and social responsibility by creating a building focused on a low budget with a high standard of planning and energy design.
