NJIT and Chinese Tech Institute join forces for 2013 Solar Decathlon in China
Date:1/18/2013

NJIT and Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) have formed Team NJHA to compete jointly in the Solar Decathlon China (SD China) competition to be held in Datong, China in August 2013. The selection of teams reflects the international nature of NJIT's program and introduces cross-border collaboration. Twenty-four teams were formed from 37 universities from 13 countries all over the world. NJIT students involved in the project are enrolled at NJIT's College of Architecture and Design.

The Nexus House is the submission of Team NJHA. SD China, an international award-winning program, challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate solar-powered energy efficient houses. It is co-hosted by China National Energy Administration and the U.S. Department of Energy and organized by Peking University.

Nexus House is a transitional home for families living in areas of China on the brink of rapid urbanization. By introducing up-to-date home technology and functionality while preserving an agrarian sensibility, the Nexus House represents the intersection of rural and urban. Each element of the house has been designed as a hub through which materials such as water, air, and power flow. These multi-functional elements represent original, innovative passive design solutions. The house respects the customs of rural Chinese family life while providing the advantages of smart, contemporary design.

"The students and I are tremendously excited about the competition and we feel our design, which we call Nexus House, is a great opportunity to showcase university talents on the world stage," said NJIT faculty advisor Richard Garber, associate professor and architect. "This past fall, our Chinese partners HIT sent us four students--three architects and a structural engineer--to work with our team. We have also enjoyed the support of the China National Building Materials group in Shanghai."

In 2011, COAD partnered with Rutgers-The State Univ
