From the alarm clock that wakes you in the morning to the house that keeps us comfortable and safe at night, vinyl plays a vital role in our everyday lives. It is truly one material with infinite uses.

VI Sponsors DALE at 2013 Solar Decathlon

The collaborative student design team from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and the California Institute of Technology made generous use of vinyl building materials in its 2013 Solar Decathlon entry. DALE (Dynamic Augmented Living Environment) featured vinyl wrapping, flooring, windows and doors. This innovative design garnered much attention with its two modules set on tracks allowing it to open and close depending on weather conditions.
