The Solar Decathlon is an annual event where collegiate teams design, build, and operate solar-powered homes. In 2011, it was held on the Mall in Washington D.C. Twenty solar-powered homes were sprawled across the mall’s west end, transforming it from a park into something that resembled a quirky housing development.
