The blocks also provide improved thermal insulation, developers say. Solar Squared&rsquo;s design consists of an array of optical elements that focus sunlight on small-sized solar cells. These are incorporated within the glass bricks during manufacture and they collect diffuse components of sunlight, making it useful for capturing solar energy in urban areas.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Academics from the Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Science department of England's University of Exter have developed a solar power technology that fits into glass bricks. Its modular design is scalable, allowing for flexible structural integration.&nbsp;<em>We now have the capability to build integrated, affordable, efficient, and attractive solar technologies as part of the building's architecture, in places where energy demand is highest, whilst having minimal impact on the landscape and on quality of life.</em></p> <p>The team is currently looking for test sites to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential of Solar Squared and seeking investment for their new start up.

In a similar if less secular vein, Napp Studio has conceived of an enormous, walkable brick wall that would feature every verse of the bible and/or other spiritual texts inscribed on titled, lightbulb-illuminated bricks.

So the living organism of mycellium, or hyphae, which is basically a mushroom root, basically makes our bricks for us. It grows our bricks in about five days with no energy required, almost no carbon emissions, and it's using basically waste&mdash; agricultural byproducts, chopped up cornstalks. This mushroom root fuses together this biomass and makes solid bricks which we can kind of tune to be different properties."</p></em><br /><br /><p>Here are a few more photos of <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/92921888/yap-winner-the-living-selected-to-re-design-moma-ps1-s-courtyard-this-summer" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Hy-Fi</em></a>, the locally-sourced, virtually waste-less biostructure by <a href="http://www.thelivingnewyork.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Living</a>, which just debuted in the courtyard of <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/13791/moma-ps1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">MoMA PS1</a>.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/u2/u23i64f539jt0c8x.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/45/457s9irnlie021bb.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/cb/cbwot8udap283nyk.jpg"></p><p><em>Photos by</em><em> Andrew Nunes.</em></p><p>In the video below, David Benjamin talks with <a href="http://thecreatorsproject.vice.com/blog/hy-fi-the-livings-local-sustainable-10000-brick-mushroom-tower-at-moma-ps1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Creators Project</a> about building the structure from&nbsp;agricultural waste and mushroom root, MOMA PS1's interest in sustainability, and how the Hy-Fi could revolutionize waste-less architecture.</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/88757450/ten-top-images-on-archinect-s-old-new-pinterest-board Ten Top Images on Archinect's "Old+New" Pinterest Board Archinect 2013-12-13T15:09:00-05:00 >2014-12-27T05:39:03-05:00 <img src="https://d38w84nuu9j2kr.cloudfront.net/images/650x/p1/p18kq4od08kr2qek.jpg" width="650" height="975" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In case you haven't checked out <a href="http://pinterest.com/archinect/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect's Pinterest</a> boards in a while, we have compiled ten recently pinned images from outstanding projects on various Archinect <a href="http://archinect.com/firms" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Firm</a> and <a href="http://archinect.com/people" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">People</a> profiles.</p> <p> (<strong>Tip:</strong> use the handy <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/69075090/7-reasons-why-you-need-to-be-using-archinect-s-follow-feature" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">FOLLOW feature</a> to easily keep up-to-date with all your favorite Archinect profiles!)</p> <p> Today's top images (in no particular order) are from the brand new board <a href="http://www.pinterest.com/archinect/old%2Bnew/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Old+New</em></a>.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/b6/b6g8hxioifgkj9p7.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr;
