adj. - used to describe any single family, free standing house built AFTER colonial times in the United States, but still having atavistic design characteristics of actual colonial houses. Somehow this style represents about 80% of current housing stock, thus representing a stagnation in architectural design for the last 232 years.
I'm so sick of looking at fauxlonial crap. I would much rather live in a modern house.

Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.
