This one is to all who are afraid of electricity black-outs.

Designed by Kennedy and his team from KVA Matx, Soft House is a structur, which create close to 16k watt-hours of electricity by transforming household curtains into flexible, semi-transparent, solar collectors.

Unfortunately, the current high cost of photovoltaic textiles makes this idea unreachable. However, the Soft House project shows that renewable energy technologies can be applied into architectural design in ways that have never been thought of before.
