"I've always liked the idea of using sustainable technologies in residential architecture. Even with cost restrictions passive heating or cooling can be used. I'm waiting for Solar Decathlon here in DC...in october. nice time to visit DC if…"

"Your questions are so good but I confess every time I think of a possible response, I think of a great building which contradicts my formulation of a design vs context paradigm. If the building is too contextual, you might miss it. If it is too…"
"I don't have that exact information you asked, but the roof did help give the house a top rating on the Energy Star H.E.R.S. scale. According to our material supplier, old school, torch down flat roof membranes are all going to be white in the…"

A big thank you to VIshal Charles for allowing me to write about him and archisage on my blog today. His dedication to setting up a network dedicated to a global conversation about architecture is truly impressive.
Thanks for the kind words of encouragement, Nadine. They're actually the first I've heard so far. I found a rare book treat in a store tonight that I'll be posting on my blog tomorrow. I think you might get a kick out of it.
Thanks That was an interesting link. Philips has been developing concept and real products around light for some time but this is the first time I saw an application at this scale. Though the text mentioned rainwater collection/wind- the images only show the application of light. Overall I think it's an interesting concept though I would prefer to see more passive systems integrated in the design instead of over relying on technology.
Hi Nadine, thanks.
I was just fascinated by the pic ... so i used it.
Frankly I just started to like and understand what Lomography is...
I will see the website and interact with u more on this as I feel u have great knowledge about it....
