revisited -- new competitions, pre-qualifications, competition results,
exhibitions, reviews -- delicious tidbits,
appalling statistics, useless scholarship

- Made in Germany: Architecture & Ecology
Barcelona, July 6, 2004
will travel to 14 other cities before it closes, in April 2006.
"The building featured range from personal homes,
such as R128 and a solar-housing settlement near Freiburg,
to a daycare center whose roof collects rainwater used to flush the toilets,
to a 'zero energy' subterranean train station (lit by cathedral-like skylights at ground level).
There is also a 'zero emissions factory,' a high rise that makes use of thermal energy, and the 'Heliotrope,'
a solar-energy powered building that rotates to follow the sun."
(Jennifer Abramsohn, dw_04.08.01)
