Solatube Adds 148 to Olympic "Metal" Count

Watch Solatubes perform at their best in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. There were 148 Solatube 750 Daylighting Systems* included in the design of the Beijing Science & Technology University Gymnasium. With energy efficiency being a design goal for this building, daylighting was a priority over artificial lighting. The facility holds the taekwondo & judo competitions, as well as the Paralympics wheelchair rugby & wheelchair basketball competitions. Watch for glimpses of Solatubes, the tubular daylighting device that takes the gold!

To find out more about the design challenges and vision, read the Solatube case study.

*The 750DS will be available in the United States later this year.
