At just 750 square feet, the Solar Roofpod is a compact design that still manages to provide all of the functions expected of a contemporary home and some. It captures rainwater for reuse [7] and generates enough energy not only for itself, but even for the building upon which it rests. But until now, the Solar Decathlon project hasn’t had a permanent base.

CCNY Spitzer School of Architecture [8] announced plans to welcome the student-designed project home and give it some company: some rooftop gardens and a windmill that will help the rooftop solar panels generate energy. The small building will double as a meeting space and an educational tool for future designers, who can study the project’s numerous eco-friendly attributes [5]. Welcome home!
