From the article: “A new branch library that opened in San Jose, California, this week sports an art glass window installation that is also a solar-power generator.” more here.
I think this is a great location for this type of art/science installation. It is in a very public space and can education people about solar energy and some of the different options surrounding it.
I’m actually surprised this type of art installation hasn’t picked up more in popularity. It’s not like the windows need to power the entire building, and it’s a nice statement to add to any LEED or other wanna-be-green, or wanna-be-artistic, building. And, they’re really pretty.
