I've documented the design, building and some testing of this project @ http://www.solarbubblebuild.com/

The SolarBubbleBuild is the first operational building of its kind in Europe. It is one of a handful of uniquely sustainable buildings around the world that makes use of interior-environment control systems commonly know as Solaroof technology.

To the lay observer, the most distinguishing feature of a Solaroof building would most likely be the use of liquid bubbles to create insulation. When required, a mass of soap bubbles are held between two transparent skins that form the roof and walls of a Solaroof building to provide a thick transparent blanket of insulation or cooling shading. There are other integral components and processes working within the building, but for anyone meeting with the project for the first time, the bubbles must be the most exciting and memorable element. Thus the name of my own project was arrived at with this thought in mind.
