To an answer Louisiana Museum of Modern Art’s invitation for the green architecture for the future exhibition, 3XN architects created the Learning from Nature Pavilion using biodegradable and energy-generating materials. In this project, the architects uses biological and reusable materials like the bio composite from flax fibers cast in bioligal resin, cork sheets, 1mm flexile solar cell for the pavilions top face. It also has the ability to generate electricity from the eight of the visitors through its piezoelectric materials, which made this pavilion a self-sufficient structure. The green feature does not end here because its surfaces are also self-cleaning through its nanoparticles coating.
It seems like electric vehicles are now getting stronger each day. A team at Keio University in Japan has just designed the 8-wheeled electric vehicle called Eliica that has the power to run the speed of up to 230mph. This speed for a fully electric car is totally awesome and amazing. The Eliica stands for Electric Lithium-Ion Car. The Eliica is a project that aims to test the capabilities of electric vehicles and exceed 250mph, which is the current record for a street-legal gas powered vehicle. The most noticeable feature of this car is that it has eight wheels that house an 80hp electric motor each.
Kiyora means clean and pure in Japanese language, and as the name suggests, the new concept car form Mazda called the Mazda Kiyora is a fuel-efficient and has low CO2 emissions. Aside from that, the Kiyora’s water inspired design, made the car looks sleeker and elegant. Its clear roofing and sidings made it easy for the driver to view and know the current happenings around him or her.
The Mazda Kiyora will soon be introduced in October 2008 at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. Apart from having a futuristic design, the Mazda Kiyora is also a lightweight car, which is a big advantage in a car.
