CRETE House Sneak Peek

Although construction is still taking place, on Aug. 18 Team WashU held an exclusive “sneak peek” of CRETE House. Chancellor Wrighton, along with Team WashU students and faculty, spoke about this unique project and thanked the many sponsors who have contributed to the project. Attendees were also given a “cool treat” in the form of Ted Drewes Frozen Concretes.

Leaders from St. Louis joined students, faculty and staff from Washington University in St. Louis Friday, Aug. 18, 2017 at WUSTL’s North Campus for a celebration and tour of the CRETE House, a house designed and built by a collaboration of students and faculty from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts and the WU School of Engineering & Applied Science. Professors Hongxi Yin and Pablo Moyano led the project, which will be competing in the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2017 in Denver Oct. 5-15, 2017.
