    NORTHFIELD — The Delta T90 — the solar house designed and built by Norwich students — will get a new home following the 2013 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. When the competition ends in October, Norwich is donating the house to the historic Ohio site of a Frank Lloyd Wright house.

    The final move is made possible through a partnership between the university and Westcott House Foundation officials.

    “The Westcott House will be a great place for the Delta T90 house to land,” said Aron Temkin, dean of the College of Professional Schools. “The organization’s mission, at the intersection of design and education, makes them an ideal partner. We are excited at the opportunity this will create for long-term study of the building’s performance and on-site learning opportunities for our students.”

    The Delta T90 will serve as a learning lab and be displayed on the site adjacent to the Westcott House in Springfield, Ohio. The house will also offer programming opportunities such as professional development workshops, youth programs and special demonstrations to promote green living and clean energy technologies.

    “We are truly excited about this partnership, as it gives us a unique opportunity to further expand our educational outreach and spark a dialogue about organic architecture, then and now,” said the executive director and curator of the Westcott House, Marta Wojcik. “The Delta T90 house team developed a remarkable design that responded to authentic needs and challenges of our times. We cannot wait to utilize it for the betterment of our community.”
