BUILDING

The building is surfaced in transparent, translucent, and opaque photovoltaic glass. The geodesic structure is inherently strong and will permit off-site prefabrication.

LANDSCAPING

There will be minimal landscaping with drought-tolerant, native plants, and a few shade trees. Porous hard surfaces, such as decomposed granite will be used to help recharge groundwater and minimize dust.

SOLAR FIELDS

Over 500,000 sq. ft. of photovoltaic arrays and parabolic collectors yield 60 MW of electrical power for day and night electrical production.
