For the Architecture contest of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, teams are required to design and build attractive, high-performance houses that integrate solar and energy-efficiency technologies seamlessly into the design.

A jury of professional architects focuses on:

Architectural elements
Architectural elements include the scale and proportion of room and facade features, indoor/outdoor connections, composition, and linking of various house elements.

Holistic design
Holistic design is an architectural design that will be comfortable for occupants and compatible with the surrounding environment.

Lighting
The jury assesses the integration and energy efficiency of electrical and natural light.

Inspiration
Inspiration is reflected in a design that inspires and delights Solar Decathlon visitors.

Documentation
Documentation includes drawings, a project manual, and an audiovisual architecture presentation that accurately reflect the constructed project on the competition site.
