MiSo* is an interdisciplinary endeavor at the University of Michigan incorporating students, faculty and staff and from the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, School of Art and Design, School of Natural Resources and Environment, Ross School of Business, and the College of Engineering to compete in the 2005 Solar Decathlon.

The Solar Decathlon is an international competition designed to promote innovation in energy-efficient building to demonstrate the beneficial possibilities of solar powered living.

The 2005 Solar Decathlon is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in partnership with its National Renewable Energy Laboratory, The Home Depot, and the American Institute of Architects.

By participating in the Decathlon, MiSo* can not only contribute to society through the creation of a solar home, but also raise awareness and understanding regarding sustainability and green building with the general public and provide an unique and powerful educational experience for students and faculty alike.
