This week Inhabitat brought you the most exciting trends in green transportation - from China's monumental plan to run high speed rail lines all the way to Europe to the unveiling of Solar Roadway's energy harvesting roads, to one 74 year old man's epic journy across the us in a solar powered stroller. We were also wowed by an enormous 3d printer that can create entire buildings out of stone and the world's first skyscraper with built-in wind turbines. Finally, we're gearing up for an exciting series of spring events, so stay tuned as we bring you the greatest green designs from the Go Green Expo, the Milan Furniture Fair, BKLYN Designs, and ICFF!
