Solar Decathlon Competition 2013 - SCI-Arc/Caltech Team : D.A.L.E. (Dynamic Augmented Living Environment) Project

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.
