LISI | Waiting
2013/11/29 | all news, photogalleries,

After ranking fourth in architecture and first in the communications contests, LISI was catapulted onto the first place with just two more competition days to go. This of course, had a huge effect on the visitor numbers during public hours. All of a sudden, a long line started wrapping itself around LISI and people had to wait up to an hour. 
The team was working hard to not only keep our waiting guests entertained, but also to still deliver a proper presentation to those inside the house. The conversations and feedback we received from our fans was overwhelming and we truly are grateful for everyone who has taken their time to come and see LISI, Team Austria’s house.

The line gets longer by the hour.http://www.solardecathlon.at/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/02_line-359x240.jpg 359w" sizes="(max-width: 920px) 100vw, 920px" />

Once the line wrapped around the house, we were really impressed.http://www.solardecathlon.at/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/03_line-359x240.jpg 359w" sizes="(max-width: 920px) 100vw, 920px" />
