This project profile is part of a series from ARCHTECT and Ecobuildingpulse.com providing a sneak peek at the designs in progress for the 2013 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, taking place Oct. 3-13 in Irvine, Calif. Project descriptions and videos are provided by each team.
Team Capitol DC's concept is Harvest Home, an innovative house of the future that harvests natural resources to power the home while maintaining comfort for its ideal resident, a wounded American veteran who has returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After competing in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013, Team Capitol DC will donate Harvest Home to its veteran client. Through harvesting natural resources, comforting design features, and an innovative biomedical atmosphere that contributes to rehabilitation of body and spirit, Harvest Home will help heal its resident and the environment.
