At the same time, the concepts of the China International Solar Decathlon Competition and the research results of Y-Project were elaborated.
In addition to the forum, Y-Team also ran a social exhibition for the general public at Xinyi Square in Suzhou's Guanqian Street.
During the all-day exhibition, the team provided an immersive VR smart space experience, a 3D display of building models, materials and design drawings. Using the building as an example, it demonstrated the concept of green design and construction and the latest technologies of clean energy. Advocating a sustainable lifestyle has won praise from participants.
