Building Blocks of Power


What if the very materials used to construct a building could be used to power that same building? That’s the idea behind Solar Squared – it’s solar power creation and building in one… and it looks damn good!

Almost indistinguishable from the common architectural element, they allow light indoors while simultaneously reducing heat and collecting solar energy. As far as sustainability goes, Solar Squared’s lifetime costs are actually less than an glass block wall of the same size due to the free electricy generation and improved thermal insulation. The cubes can also be tinted to prevent rooms overheating and are available in a variety of colors depending on the client’s aesthetic taste.
