Building competition team to be honored

Those university students who constructed a house for the  Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 in Versailles, France, did not come home empty-handed. The project was designed by the public as the favorite house.

The students at  Tecnológico de Costa Rica had constructed the solar home here, dismantled it and built it again in Europe. They will be honored this morning at the Cartago campus.

The goal was to design and build a sustainable dwelling. In all, 35 students and 20 professors from a number of disciplines were involved in the job.

The European event hosted 20 projects from around the world.

This is the Tropika house built by the Costa Rican students.
