It’s finally the week of the Solar Decathlon  competition! From Thursday, October 8 to Friday, October 16, 20 multi-disciplinary students teams made up of architects, engineers, and designers will participate in 10 contests to determine the winner. You can take a peek at each team’s standing here . Taking place at the National Mall, all the homes will be open for public viewing from October 9 to October 13 and October 15 to October 18. Inhabitat has been on the scene  of the competition, so take a look at our up-to-date reporting today — and check back next week for more coverage.
We’ve also been scouting to see what the interwebs have been buzzing about the Decathlon:
We also stumbled upon US Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon flickr feed .
