The Key to the Battery-Powered House
By Randy Wright / 2009
Scientists have created a small-scale prototype battery that could store enough energy to power a house for most of the day. Is this small disk the key to cost-effective solar-powered homes?
The new battery runs on sodium-sulfur—a composition that typically operates at greater than 600 F. “Sodium-sulfur is more energetic than lead-acid, so if you can somehow get it to a lower temperature, it would be valuable for residential use, Ralph Brodd, an independent energy conversion consultant, says.
Ceramatec’s new battery runs at less than 200 F. The secret is a thin ceramic membrane that is sandwiched between the sodium and sulfur. Only positive sodium ions can pass through, leaving electrons to create a useful electrical current. Ceramatec says that batteries will be ready for market testing in 2011, and will sell for about $2000.
Who Wanna Be An Architect?
Architecture in Turbulent Times
The central fact of architecture in our time is the collapse of the modern movement. One by one, the central planks of architectural modernism—moral urgency, an agenda of social reform, and a strong sense of historical mission—have fallen away, leaving only the forms to live on. Without modernism’s social program to underpin it, architecture has become a species of commercial art, adjusting its façades and spaces with no more ideological consideration than goes into the updating of a hemline. Paradoxically, this development has made the major modern architects far more interesting figures than they were a generation ago. In the 1960’s, modernism’s luminaries had come to be ridiculed for their humorlessness, their authoritarian disposition, and their utter obliviousness to the complex reality of life as it is actually lived. In particular, their stance of moral seriousness seemed preposterous. Today, however, things look rather different. Perhaps because an age of anarchy always looks yearningly toward rule-givers, there is considerable nostalgia for and curiosity about the heroes of modernism. This may explain the recent spate of major books and exhibitions on such mid-20th-century masters as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (2001), Marcel Breuer (2007), and Eero Saarinen (2008).
