International Design Center, Powered By Solar Energy

Designed by LIN, the ‘Cité du Design‘ or Centre International du Design’ is an amazing structure powered by solar energy. It will be housing or be the starting point in a lot of the world’s efforts concerning communication, research and education in design. Its exact location is in Saint-Etienne, France. The construction took no less than €41.5 million to build and besides the solar power energy system, there is a well implemented heating plan, also based on sustainable grounds. We salute this breathtaking idea and we invite you to see some photos of the stunning building. -via
