The exterior of Vincent Freeman's house in the 1997 film Gattaca is the CLA Building on the Cal Poly Pomona campus.
The building was designed by Antoine Predock in the Futurist style and completed in 1993. Due to recent structural flaws surfacing, as well as the placement of the building on an active fault line, the building is scheduled for demolition.
This solar thermal plant uses parabolic troughs to generate heat, then steam, then power.
It was featured in the 1997 film Gattaca when Uma Therman and Ethan Hawke have a wildly romantic night out together and end up at a 150-megawatt solar power plant that can generate about 354 megawatts at peak output. Hot stuff.
