The A+D Museum in Los Angeles recently hosted a panel discussion for their new sci-fi inspired “SOUPERgreen” exhibit. The architects involved wanted to challenge conventional sustainable design trends
NASA just awarded four research groups a total of $16.5 million to develop projects that focus on improving airliner safety, fuel efficiency and noise. Included is a remarkable study by The Cessna
An ambitious new proposal in the European Union calls for the elimination of fossil fuel-burning vehicles in cities by the year 2050. The radical plan, proposed by the European Commission, would prohibit
Researchers are working on developing 200 year-old technology to help firefighters fight blazes with electrical wands instead of water and chemicals. The method uses currents of energy to zap fires at
We're excited to announce that the Elektra One electric airplane has just successfully completed its first and second flights in Augsburg, Germany! Developed by Calin Gologan, the electric aircraft
One of the coolest features of the Nest is that Romero suspended it from an airplane cable 23 feet off the ground. Unlike more traditional treehouses that are anchored to their base tree, the Nest sways
If you have fantasies of living like the Swiss Family Robinson or even the characters in Lost, this rainforest resort near Quepos, Costa Rica may be just the ticket. Situated on the edge of the Manuel
This funky bike is making news today not just for its design but for how it is made. UK engineers printed the bike using a powder composed of nylon and metal which results in a frame that has the
What began as an assemblage of 1,000 empty beer cartons pulled together by residents in East Germany has now evolved into an incredible open air public library. Designed by Karo Architekten in
Researchers at the University of Michigan are studying plants that move in an attempt to use their natural hydraulic motion to build new structures that can change and adapt their shape on their own. This
A high-tech coating used on military aircraft could make commercial planes more aerodynamic and allow them to fly more efficiently through the air.
Australian designer Jaron Dickson has come up with a concept for a hydrogen-powered, flying yacht. If that wasn't cool enough, the yacht is based on the legendary Soviet super-vehicle the Ekranoplan. As a
Honda is world famous for their efficient automobiles, but now they have set sights on replicating that success with the aircraft. The Japanese carmaker has just unveiled a new, lightweight jet prototype
The readers have spoken! To wrap up 2010 we asked for your final say as to what the best green stories were last year. From livable cities built to generate solar power, to near microscopic sculptures
We've brought you news about the solar powered Zephyr plane and its ability to break records such as the world's longest unmanned flight before, but this week, the UK-designed plane not only had its
We've seen electric aircraft advance the horizons of carbon-free aviation by leaps and bounds lately, and this month a brand new electric plane successfully conducted its maiden flight. The all-electric
Two Bushwick warehouses are joined together in this renovation project, called the Wycoff Exchange, that includes a live music and performance venue along with an organic market and boutique wine shop.
Remember the Cri-Cri, the world's smallest electric plane? In August, we wrote how the vehicle had made its first maiden flight near Paris, and now it has shattered the speed record for electric aircraft
On the plane's interior, the cockpit has been turned into a lofty seating space with a great view. While the restaurant apparently hasn't been in commission for quite a while now, the tables, seats and

Good news for European jet-setters: traveling from the U.K. to Germany and Holland is about to get a whole lot easier. German rail company Deutsche Bahn is in the testing stages for a cross-channel bullet
A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Field and Space Robotic Laboratory (FSRL) has designed a new solar-powered water desalination system to provide drinking water to disaster
We here at Inhabitat are huge fans of the Solar Impulse, an incredible zero emission aircraft powered by 12,000 solar cells located on its wings. Over the last year we've cheered this stellar solar
Political correctness aside, Boeing's proposed solar-powered spy plane is really freakin' cool: the company says the plane it's building for the DOD will be able to fly unmanned for five years straight.
As budget airlines scramble for ways to squeeze more passengers into planes — some have proposed standing-room only tickets — an Italian design firm has what it thinks is a good compromise: a
The ground floor is an open entrance space that features only a small staircase to indicate the richness of the living spaces above. The second floor simply contains a mechanical room and storage. An
