These conceptual three-legged structures by Najjar & Najjar Architects would allow Beirut fisherman to reclaim the coastline and generate electricity.

Najjar & Najjar Architects propose installing the kinetic Iris structures along Beirut's shoreline to provide elevated shelters that also harness the movement of the waves to generate power. Studio founders Karim and Rames Najjar believe the structures would help locals retain public access to the seafront, which has been dominated by private development in recent years.

Even as more affordable photovoltaics and government incentives for adopting renewable energy sources have made solar a financially attractive alternative in some areas, it can still be hard to find accurate, easy-to-understand information to help make the leap. The Solar Tool, developed by the Sustainable Design Lab at MIT and Boston-based design workshop MoDe Studio, aims to solve that problem for the city of Cambridge. Simply enter your address, and a comprehensive satellite map of Cambridge shows you how efficient your own

rooftop is for soaking up the sun’s rays, from excellent to poor, down to the square meter.
