By Dialogo July 23, 2011 The sport isn’t very popular and the site for the event is more than 40 miles from Rio de Janeiro. However, at least a thousand people have attended to watch the dressage, jumping and eventing for the 5th Military World Games at the National Equestrian Center in General Eloy Menezes Equestrian Park. The jumping competitions are attracting the most viewers. The audience reaction ranges from minutes of silence, in order to not disturb the athletes to waves of emotion similar to that of a sound when someone scores a goal in soccer. When Captain Claudio Gogga finished his first race on Friday, July 22, fans greeted him with an explosion of joy: the Brazilians rose from the seats, raised their arms, waved their flags and joyously applauded the Captain’s performance. “I was hoarse from supporting the swim team on Monday. Now I’m going to leave here without a voice,” said Ivone de Carvalho Reinold, a housewife of 50 years. Ivone took advantage of her children’s vacation to bring them to these Games. During the dressage category, fans remain quiet as the competitors exhibit their skills to the sounds of classical music. But at the end of each show, the fans let their voices be heard. The language that prevails, however, is Spanish. Of the 20 athletes competing in the Equestrian event, four are Brazilians, while the rest of the riders are from Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Uruguay (four each). Wearing a shirt of Uruguay, Major Mauro Sathler Gripp, 40, seems to be one of the Uruguayan fans. “I’m a fan of teams riding horses. That is the spirit of the Games of Peace: a Brazilian with a shirt of Uruguay,” he explains. Accompanied by his wife, Rita Lauren, and his sons, Peter and Bruno, 12 and 9 years respectively, Gripp came from afar to support Brazil and neighboring Uruguay. The Major serves in the Army in Três Corações, a city in Minas Gerais. “We took the kids on vacation and came to watch this important event,” said Rita.

During his shooting workout at the end of Thursday’s practice, Curry still had tape around his recently dislocated middle finger on his left hand. Though Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry practiced on Thursday without any restrictions, it appears …
Holladay may be right overall, but Levine’s home is a great example of a solar home that has performed well. It didn’t overheat because he stored heat in the rock beds below and could vent excess heat out the top when necessary. His main problem was humidity that went a bit too high in summer because passive cooling doesn’t deal with the water vapor in the air.Here’s a quick rundown of a few of the cool features, including what he eventually did about the summer humidity:Solar collector for space heating. What you see in the photo above is not all windows dumping massive quantities of sunlight into the living space. Some of them are windows, and some are a special type of solar collector that he designed and patented. Each column of collector glazing has corrugated aluminum behind it, and as the air heats up, it rises naturally. The solar gain on those columns of air can provide up to a 100 degree Fahrenheit rise in temperature.But he’s doing more than just using the stack effect. He designed a system that uses a fan to move the hot air from the top of each column down to rock beds in the basement, where the heat gets stored. When it’s cloudy, he can draw heat out of the rock beds for two weeks. It’s a pretty sophisticated system, and he’s avoided turning the rock beds into a mold factory. One of the photos below shows the original controller for it, which is no longer in use.Composting toilet. The house has had a Clivus Multrum composting toilet since the beginning. Having built and lived in a house with a composting toilet myself, I get it. Many people don’t, however, especially if it means sitting over a big open hole straight to the tank in the basement. But think of all the water he’s saved by never having to flush a toilet in his home for four decades! In the second photo below, you can see the tank in the basement and the access door through which you remove the composted material.Net zero energy. A few years ago, Levine installed photovoltaic modules on the studio adjacent to the house. Because of the cold winter this year, he hasn’t been net zero in his energy balance between consumption and production over the past year, but he was for the two years before that.Other updates. Levine recently installed a heat-pump water heater and a decade or so ago had a ground-source heat pump put in. The latter was mainly to get cooling with dehumidification. He had relied on natural cooling for a long time but finally decided that the humidity issue warranted a mechanical air conditioning system.I didn’t get to spend a lot of time there, but it’s exciting to see that a classic solar-heated house from the 1970s — and one of the earliest ones, at that — has not only survived, but has served its purpose well and evolved gracefully over time.Levine is a new board member for the Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS), as am I, so I look forward to working with him. He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and ideas, which will help immensely as we take this movement further down the road to more sustainable buildings. The Raven Run Solar HouseThe creek that runs in the ravine near the house is called Raven Run, so the house is called the Raven Run Solar House. Levine designed and built it in 1974-75, one of the earlier solar houses built as a result of the energy crises of the ’70s. Martin Holladay has done a great job covering the history of solar-heated and superinsulated houses in North America. (See Solar Versus Superinsulation: A 30-Year-Old Debate and The History of Superinsulated Houses in North America.) He contends that superinsulation won because most solar houses overheated on sunny days and froze people out on cold nights.

It was a great regional conference, and the folks there are making things happen. (I even played nice. With all those Kentucky Wildcat fans there, I held back and didn’t mention in any of my talks that I’m a Florida Gator.) One of the many highlights for me was getting to visit Richard Levine’s 1970s active solar house. It stands out like no other house I’ve seen, and I’ve seen other solar houses.Your first question upon seeing the photo here might be, “Is that really a house?” Yup. He chose the shape to maximize solar gain while minimizing the area of the building enclosure. It’s a cube sliced on the diagonal, which you can see in Part 1 of the video series below. (That part starts at about the 3:30 mark.) Part 2 Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a speaker, writer, energy consultant, RESNET-certified trainer, and the author of the Energy Vanguard Blog.
