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.

A new "luxury" apartment building with amenities meant to appeal to young urban professionals and dinks, like party rooms and gyms. Used without any concern for ownership structure (most "condos" in this sense are rentals, not owned by their occupants).
The condos are spreading from Williamsburg into Bushwick. Next they'll be popping up in the Evergreens cemetery.

Traditionally, an apartment-style home that you own. However, condos can resemble apartments, lofts, townhomes, or single-family homes. California has a lot of gated single-family detached homes that are marketed as condos because landscaping, common areas, the community pool and spa, and tennis courts are taken care of as part of an astronomically high association fee. They can be converted and upgraded from their apartment days or built with their intended purpose from the start. They make good vacation properties and can provide rental income when not in use. Condos are the international language of homeownership because you can get one anywhere in the world. Condos can be on golf courses, beaches, greenbelts, etc. A penthouse is the king of condos.
"I don't have time to take care of a yard because I'm a medical doctor who works 80 hours a week, that's why I own a $2 million dollar condo in Hollywood whose association dues cover a club room, rooftop deck, movie theater, sauna, tennis courts, workout room, weight room, and pool and spa. I could own a 6000 sq. ft. home in the suburbs for the same money, but I want an urban lifestyle with all the amenities and shopping and I don't want a half-hour commute.

Kingdom of men in Middle-Earth that curiously has an elf as heir to its throne. Home of Boromir and the Horn of Condo.
Legolas: I'm heir to the throne of Condo.
Boromir: Condo have no king. Condo need no king.

shorthand for conditionality. A term used in policy debate with conditional arguments, such as counterplans and kritiks, but can also apply to some advantages and a plantext. Arguably abusive in debate rounds and a viable 2AR strategy if the negative reads more than five offcase positions that the 2AC can't cover.
I heard his 2AR was a full five minutes on condo bad. Needless to say, the neg's 2NR strat was fucked coming out of that 2AR.
