    "The Heliotrope" designed by Rolf Disch is a house in Vauban, Freiburg, Germany that runs on solar power and generates more power than it uses. (photo by Rolf Disch SolarArchitektur, © 2009) Words cannot describe how awesome this is.

    The Heliotrope generates more power than it uses, according to Rolf Disch SolarArchitektur. Designed to use the sun’s energy by turning the more energy-efficient side of the cylindrical home toward the sun in different seasons. A large multi-directional solar panel array on the roof tracks the sun’s movements in order to get the best charge possible. This system powers a unified climate and floor warmth system, and a rooftop collector traps and filters rainwater.
