University teams from around the world compete to create net zero energy solar powered houses for the Solar Decathlon competitions. WPI has partnered with two other universities to form Team BEMANY for the Solar Decathlon China 2013 (SD China 2013). This project overviews the structural design and construction considerations for Team BEMANY’s entry named the Solatrium into SD China. The Solatrium was designed to conform to the SD China 2013 rules which included Chinese Building codes, and to Massachusetts building codes.
