VIA Architect Andrea Murray to Present at 2012 Better Buildings by Design Conference
February 8 & 9, 2012
Sheraton Conference Center
Burlington, Vermont

One of 35+ interactive presentations, 50+ exhibits and demonstrations, over 1000 participants, Andrea and three Middlebury College students (Hilary Cunningham, Addison Godine, and Shane Scranton) will present the process and product of Middlebury’s effort in the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon.  It is our intent to share with as many people as possible our experience designing and constructing a 100% solar-powered house for Vermont.  Yes, it can be done: solar in Vermont.  And, we know how.  Let our experience help you make buildings that don’t depend on fossil fuel for their operations and maintenance.  Let us also show you how we used local materials and expertise to make it happen.

Finally, we’ll let you in on our secret…idea sharing for Middlebury’s 2013 Solar Decathlon entry.
