A year after a solar decathlon competition in France, the one-of-a-kind solar house designed and built by students at Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design and University of Applied Sciences in Erfurt, Germany is in the limelight. Fast Company has selected this solar house as one of nine finalists for its 2015 “Innovation by Design” student awards.

The business magazine took note of the house’s novel construction: flexible, durable fabric supported by a steel rib structure. Fast Company considered 1,500 entries before selecting its finalists and winner.
