Students walking through the University of Cincinnati's campus this summer have seen a house rise from the ground in front of Braunstein Hall. The house is the University's entrance into the 2007 Solar Decathlon, a competition between 20 selected schools to build the best solar-powered home and promote sustainable design. UC's team is about ready to take their show on the road - their re[form] project will be shipping off to Washington D.C. soon where it will be assembled on the National Mall and judged alongside the other competitors.

So, now is the time to go check out this revolutionary home that combines environmental sensitivity with kick-ass architecture, engineering and design. The UC Solar Decathlon team will be holding an open-house/reception tomorrow (Wednesday), September 12th at the school from 5pm to 8pm. Everyone is invited to come see the result of the team's hard work and dedication - but if you are feeling generous, please try and help the team (and the house) on their trip to D.C. and back. Reception starts at 5, presentation starts at 5:30. Please, try to RSVP to cincinnati.reform@gmail.com if you plan on coming. So, stop by Braunstein Hall on UC's campus and show your support!
