Desert Rose House Festival Week
July 16, 2018 - July 22, 2018
Team UOW is changing the way the world views homes for the elderly.
The Solar Decathlon competition has been held biennially since 2002, and challenges student teams to design and build full-size, solar-powered houses. The winner is the team that best blends design excellence and smart energy production with innovation, market potential, and energy and water efficiency.
Team UOW are taking on the 2018 Solar Decathlon challenge (which the 2013 Team UOW won) with the Desert Rose House in Dubai. We are looking to change the way the world views homes for the elderly by designing a house that is architecturally inspiring, celebrates life and demonstrates a house that adapts to an ageing person’s needs.
Do you want to hear more from the team, or see the Desert Rose House in person? There will be multiple events across the week of the 16th – 22nd July celebrating the DRH build, and opening the site for public viewing. Be inspired by Desert Rose House tours, our speakers, sustainable technology expo and workshops. Keep tuned for further details by visiting the Desert Rose website or Facebook page.
