Next generation design prize

Last week, the fifth edition of metropolis’ next generation® design prize was awarded to architect and professor, eric olsen. The 2008 prestigious design prize was based around the theme of water. Olsen’s project, a solar water disinfecting tarpaulin, was awarded 10,000 USD for coming out on top of a very competitive field. Created for transporting and purifying water, his design can be used in a variety of areas were potable water is inaccessible. the design is a lightweight and flexible bag which is created through digital manufacturing and cleans water through passive solar radiation (thanks to Stefan Legner and Werner Aisslinger for pointing me to this)

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
