They are fully weather proof and, unlike traditional solar panels, blend in with standard roof slates to provide an aesthetically pleasing solar panel roof. Heritage Solar Slates are ideal for use in conservation areas, on historic buildings, new builds or renovation projects. It is hoped that the slate panels will enable groups like The UK's National Trust to reduce the carbon footprint of historical buildings and attractions.

Ball-Nouges' "Cradle" Offers Abstract Depictions of Surroundings 

Commissioned by the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division, "Cradle" is designed by Los Angeles-based studio of Ball-Nogues and is situated on the exterior wall of an existing parking structure at Santa Monica Place. Near the beach and the Third Street Promenade, the site is heavily trafficked by tourists on foot and in automobiles. An aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres, the sculpture operates structurally like an enormous Newton’s Cradle - the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives. Each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination of gravity and neighboring balls while reflecting the a distorted image of passerby in both cars on foot.
