Comments Off on LEGO Adds Corbusier’s Villa Savoye To Its Architecture Landmark Series!

Le Corbusier ‘s iconic Villa Savoye has just been added to LEGO’s famed Architecture Landmark Series ! The structure, which lies on the outskirts of Paris, France , is a quintessential example of the International style, and perfectly illustrates Corbu’s “5-Points” — an architectural marker that still resonates within modern design today. The real-life home was originally designed as a private country house in 1931, and it quickly became one of the most influential buildings of the 20th century. In fact, tours of the perfectly preserved home are still given today to eager architecture students and enthusiasts looking to see Corbu’s work first hand. The 660 piece design will officially launch tomorrow (for $69.99), and will come with a booklet that details the design and history of the home. + LEGO Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: famous lego buildings , Le Corbusier , lego architecture , lego architecture sets , lego buildings , lego landmark architecture , lego le corbusier , Lego Villa Savoye , Lego Villa Savoye – Corbusier

Comments Off on Phillips 66 and Solarmer Develop World’s Most Efficient Polymer-Based Organic Solar Cell

A two-year partnership between Houston-based Phillips 66 , California-based Solarmer Energy and the South China University of Technology (SCUT) has resulted in the most efficient polymer-based organic solar cell ever constructed. The cell features an efficiency rating of 9.31%, and it puts the team a good step further in introducing the technology to the market. Polymer-based solar cells are transparent, lightweight and flexible – and the technology is thought to open up several new creative applications for solar power, including integrating flexible solar films in vehicles, transparent solar cell windows , and even solar-powered clothing .

Comments Off on No Doubt About It, New Study Shows High Speed Rail Reduces Emissions

Researchers have (unsurprisingly) found that high-speed rail in California is definitely green. Opponents have held that the high-speed rail, with its 68 billion dollar price tag, may not be worth the trouble, but in a recent study researchers show that the rail project will be a positive investment, reducing emissions and easing travel congestion.
