RoofKIT was one of 18 entries to the Solar Decathlon Europe 21-22, in which student teams from international colleges and universities each constructed a fully functional building prototype in Wuppertal in the summer of 2022, with which they competed in ten different architectural and structural engineering disciplines. With the RoofKIT project, the team from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology won the Solar Decathlon Europe 21-22. In two and a half years of intensive interdisciplinary teamwork in teaching, research and practice, students and teachers addressed the issues of sustainable resource consumption, renewable energy generation and coexistence in the city of the future from an architectural perspective.
RoofKIT is also part of the exhibition contribution of the Sustainable Building Professorship in the foyer of the 1st floor of Building 20.40 (KIT South Campus) in the context of the annual exhibition “Reinschauen” of the KIT Faculty of Architecture from May 11 to 17, 2023.
