Project Description


On Friday, March 2, 2012, Henryville, Indiana suffered an EF-4 tornado. With such devastation hitting so close to home, our team began to focus on developing a house that would be quickly deployable, reliable, and safe for people to restart their lives after disaster.

The Phoenix House is designed to be a permanent solution for disaster relief. After a disaster, one’s life is forever changed, and one wishes to return to the life he or she once knew. With the Phoenix House, the hope is to return to a life better than before. The phoenix is a shining symbol of rebirth. Team Kentuckiana is proud to reveal the Phoenix House as our design for the 2013 Solar Decathlon.
