In May 2012, the CTU team invited Ulrike Passe, the coordinator of the Iowa team that participated in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2009 competition. An optimistic and vigorous architect arrived and shared her experience. Her Prague lecture interconnected design, research and technologies. During the joint workshop the AIR House was directed to passive design and common sense.
