‘Design Revolution’ comes to Homewood via Airstream

A huge trailer rolls onto the Homewood campus this week, and it won’t be carrying construction materials. The 45-foot Airstream, which will be parked from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, in front of the MSE Library, is a showcase for new engineering technologies for sustainability. “Driving” the exhibition and the visit is Emily Pilloton, author of the new book Design Revolution, which profiles a range of 40 inexpensive technologies for water supply, energy, food, health and the environment. Pilloton and her book have been featured on The Colbert Report.
