Virginia Tech [1]‘s sun-powered Lumenhaus [2] was one of our favorite entries in the 2009 Solar Decathlon [3], so we’re thrilled to announce that it’s currently on display in Times Square, New York [4]! This gorgeous self-sufficient house is features a shifting solar facade that moves throughout the day to allow daylight to enter while controlling the interior temperature. If you’d like to check out this marvel of efficiency for yourself, head on down to Times Square today — the exhibit will end tonight at midnight, so don’t miss out!
