LEAFHouse, the adaptable resource-efficient house, demonstrates what happens when bio-inspired design savvy, traditional know-how, and 21st century technology join as integral parts of a sustainable lifestyle.
LEAFHouse is a natural extension of the University of Maryland's history of success in integrated, innovative design. In 2007, Maryland participated for the third time in the Solar Decathlon organized by the U.S. Department of Energy. Maryland placed second overall in the competition, and first among U.S. teams.
