Designed by the Technical University of Denmark , the Plus Energy FOLD House  is a versatile modular home that can be configured in a variety of different ways depending on how its site is laid out.
The Heliomet SunBloc House  by the London Metropolitan University  is designed to be placed on the rooftops of existing buildings, where it will supply electricity and hot water to its neighbors.
Team Zaragoza ‘s Casa Pi  is the only circular house in this year’s European Solar Decathlon . The sun powered cylindrical home is designed to generate two times more energy than it consumes while cutting water use by one half.
China’s Tongji University  drew upon Daoist principles to design the Para Eco-House  – a self-sufficient home that takes advantage of Passivhaus strategies to keep its energy use to a minimum.
