Energy Dept. Unveils Winning Design for Solar Wall
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four architects from Chicago, a city known for its Sears Tower and Hancock Building, have designed a different kind of structure that could one day be a new landmark in the U.S. capital.
Martin Wolf and three co-workers from architectural firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates concocted the world's largest sun wall to cover the barren south wall of Department of Energy headquarters in Washington.
The massive solar panel, designed for a contest sponsored by the DOE to generate interest in solar energy, is expected to supply enough power to run the equivalent of about 60 homes.
