Mar '13 - May '13
The SCI-Arc/Caltech team is hosting a Media Day on Wednesday, May 29th at 11:00 AM. We will be giving media and sponsors a sneak preview of what our project DALE will look like, give interviews and answer questions pertaining to the Solar Decathlon and our project!
There will also be the opportunity to photograph the construction progress and see the house on its way to completion!
Stay tuned as we will be updating the site with images and videos of the event!
At 6:00am this morning we "broke ground" starting the construction process and physical existence of DALE! Thanks to DPR Construction for all your support!
We have completed and submitted our Construction Documents! Building is the next step on the agenda. Stay tuned!

The Solar Decathlon Competition is a biennial competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Solar Energy where 20 schools from around the world compete in designing and building a net zero prototype home. The SCI-Arc/Caltech team proposes D.A.L.E. (Dynamic Augmented Living Environment), a 600sf micro-home that literally moves on rails, expanding to create a mid-yard and multiplying the inhabitable space.
