University of Virginia - Learning Barge

The University of Virginia's School of Architecture has built a "Learning Barge" on the Elizabeth River that is a floating classroom that uses wind and solar polar to produce its own energy - and uses native plants to filter its wastewater. It was one of six student projects to receive a grant from the U.S. EPA in 2007 under EPA's P3 (People, Prosperity, Planet) grant program.
