This is the jury of the Solar Decathlon in Wuppertal
The jury for the Solar Decathlon in Wuppertal has now been decided - from the originator of the competition to the winner of the "Nobel Prize for Architecture". The international experts from science and practice come to NRW in June to honor the most convincing concepts for climate-friendly building and living in our cities.
In five months, the Solar Decathlon Europe 21/22 (SDE 21/22 for short) will be: Experience sustainable building and living! From June 10th to 26th, the most important university architecture competition in the world will take place in Wuppertal. 18 student teams from eleven countries are building 18 fully functioning houses on the Solar Campus, which combine climate protection and sophisticated architecture.
This is how the competition works
As part of the competition, the teams measure their projects in ten disciplines. In three disciplines, the quality assessment is carried out by measurements - e.g. in energy consumption, the room climate and solar technology. In seven disciplines, an expert jury evaluates the projects that the teams have been planning for more than three years. In the end, the team that scores the most points in total wins the SDE 21/22. The jurors decide who can take home the victory of the first Solar Decathlon competition held in Germany.
“Our jury guarantees the high quality of the competition thanks to their many years of experience and expertise. All jury members are specialists in their fields and bring special skills to the jury work,” explains competition director Prof. Karsten Voss from the University of Wuppertal.
