Boston Architectural College invites you to join us at a reception to honor the efforts of Team Boston and to applaud the supporters and volunteers who support the BAC/Tufts Team Boston's entry in the 2009 Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The Live Curious exhibition highlights the design and construction of the Curio House.

WHEN... Wednesday, September 23, 6pm
WHERE... McCormick Gallery, 320 Newbury Street, Boston

The Curio House exemplifies the next evolutionary leap in sustainable architecture. With the spatial separation of passive and active systems, and a user-friendly feedback display, the house re-humanizes the relationship between people and complex building systems making it less intimidating and more accessible to the average American.

Students from the Boston Architectural College and Tufts University have orchestrated a multidisciplinary team of almost 200 students from 12 majors, including various areas of design, engineering, and public policy. The result is a house that addresses a wide range of issues in a manner that everyone can relate to, the perfect representation of two schools driven by relevant, real-world solutions. The team has dedicated a large portion of their website to the sharing of their extensive research, fulfilling their mission of public engagement and education.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
