Solar Garden Concept

The Solar Garden concept is intended to offer both community space and energy generation to be placed atop residential developments.  Through the use of solar panels not just as energy generators but as space and shade creators it is envisaged that the project will offer a more interactive and close connection with sustainability.  The solar ‘leaves’ rotate to face the sun, provide shade for the building and people below and offer seating to promote occupation and usage of under-utilised roof-top spaces.  A resource monitoring centre for the community is incorporated in the proposal as a tool for education of energy and resource usage and sustainability.
