    How many Teletubbies does it house?

    I like the concept of using renewable energy to power events but the general design is not very captivating. The colors are too garish and the form is very space age. It doesn’t seem like it fits into our lifestyle.

    It would be great to see a holistic approach to sustainable design in a desert landscape. Although evaporative cooling is an effective way to moderate temperature this is probably not the right environment for it and the rest of the architecture just isn’t well designed. The plan is awkward and the form and materials have no connection to the context.

    For inspiring sustainable designs check out past winners of the Holcim Awards. The 2011 Holcim Awards are now open for submissions. Enter your ideas today!

    Pretty, but DUMB. Most of the solar panels point away from the sun, and the windows are made of huge pieces of plastic, which is usually made from petroleum. Please post articles about practical designs instead of silly stuff that only makes people think that solutions are being developed, when in reality the “solutions” are more problems masquerading as solutions.
