The Sun Shaped Column is a solar powered kinetic public art sculpture made of painted steel. It is approximately 80 feet tall, and 20 feet wide. The column is hollow in the center and open at the base so visitors can walk into the center of the sculpture, and look up through it to the sky above.

The Solar Gardens Visitors Center by Jantzen Studio

The Solar Gardens Visitors Center was created as a proposal for a large public art structure designed to harvest energy from the sun, and to collect and store rainwater for use in and around the structure. In addition, the structure and the surrounding plaza would be made from photo catalytic concrete that cleans itself, and the air.

Hamburg`s Largest Solar-Sail Building, German architectural studio blauraum has built a railway service building with an optimal energy balance on half the amount of land occupied by the old facility. The result decreases CO2 emissions by the weight of 2 African elephants (10,635 kg/year) and saves as much energy as 6 100 square metre homes consume in a year (55,974 kWh/year).
