reThink Wood

Wish I was able to attend this highly interesting event about taller wood buildings. So many benefits in comparison to the traditional steel and concrete-structure. But just give it time, I bet it will be more common in the future.

Now we´re talking – Solar energy that doesnt block the view

Something very interesting is brewing at Michigan State University. They have researched and developed a new type of solar concentrator made by transparent material so it may be used in windows. The efficiency isn´t great at todays date, but the most interesting part is that there now is a concept, and given some time, they hope to be able to raise the efficiency. It´s a natural, logical solution that I hope will be very common in the future.
