Solar Pavement: The Future of Sidewalks? 

Onyx Solar recently teamed up with Butech to launch a new line of photovoltaic paving stones made from ceramic and glass. The streamlined solar stones are manufactured using a process that produces less CO2 and uses less energy than traditional pavement, making this energy-generating material even better for reducing the environmental impact of building projects. Onyx and Butech hope to release the tiles to market by the end of this year, making them the first PV pavement system available for purchase. Though the pavement is not suited for vehicular traffic, it is well suited for human traffic and can support furniture as well.

Who Says Temporary Classrooms Need to Be Inadequate? And Ugly? 

Renovations of historic school buildings often displace students into temporary, mobile and sometimes inadequate learning spaces for years at a time. Kris Celtnieks, a recent University of Oregon architecture graduate, has a thoughtful solution to school renovations - build a temporary, modular school nearby for use in the interim as construction takes place. In Celtnieks' master thesis work, he designed a prefabricated school that could be easily assembled and disassembled in order to make the transition period a positive experience for both students and teachers.

Balancing Barn Offers Cantilevered Rental Home in the English Countryside 

Two years ago, Dutch firm MVRDV was commissioned by Living Architecture, a British organization that promoted the exposure of modern architecture to the general public via holiday rentals. Half of the 30-meter building, located in Suffolk, is suspended in mid-air cantilevered over a steep slope. Because of the slop, from the inside, it seems as though you’re on ground level and tree-height at the same time.

UNStudio Architects Design Innovative Table with Seats Built In

Amsterdam-based architects UNStudio debuted this table at Interieur 2010, the Design Biennial in Belgium. UNStudio designed two tables for the Dutch brand Prooff. One table is oak with one orange upholstered seat, and the other is longer and white, with two purple upholstered seats. The tables are supported by a web of thin steel legs. The design, called SitTable, is designed to meet the possibilities of combined functionality and sociality, offering a new interpretation of the gathering space of the table.

Belzberg Architects Offer Raw Emotional Impact With New Home for LA Holocaust Museum

LA's newest museum is the permanent home for the Holocaust Museum, a 50 year-old institution. The striking building designed by Belzberg Architects features a generous green roof that acts as an extension of the adjacent Pan Pacific Park. The project was also designed to express one of the darkest moments in human history - a buried organic form greets visitors as they descend into a unique museum space that memorializes those who died and survived the holocaust.
