Liquid silver

Ross Lovegrove's latest project, the Alpine Capsule.

Designed for one-night stays in Piz la Ila of Italy’s Alta Badia region, some 2,100m above sea level. The solar and wind powered 8m-diameter acrylic mirror finished dome will be entirely weather controlled and energy independent. Construction is due to commence in 2010.
