SolaRoof 1982: glazing and bubble generation was demonstrated by Richard Nelson at his private company Thermactive System Limited using a small sea container turned sideways 45 degrees and south side was mostly cut open for double layer glazing materials.
SolaRoof 1997: This large project was built and still operating on the Campus of MUM (a private grade school) in Fairfield, Iowa. It shows Richard Nelson’s inventions for a flat SolaRoof, which is how we do large area, horizontal roof systems, as applicable to CityPOD and generally to the concept of “big box buildings”.
