We have had a fruitful year with various programs. This year, we will be ending our Programs with a tour to the FutureHAUS at Virginia Tech. The original FutureHAUS was lost in a fire last year. FutureHAUS Dubai for the Solar Decathlon Middle East is currently in the middle of construction. This will be construction tour but still very interesting and innovative.

FutureHAUS Dubai is a prototype for the high-volume production homes of the future that will be smart, sustainable, beautiful, and easily adapted to the needs of communities worldwide.
