Sunny Shadows

Sunny Shadows by Bela Nouriani

‘Sun­ny Shad­ows’ is a mod­u­lar ele­ment made out of inno­v­a­tive pho­to­volta­ic films, aligned one after anoth­er in rows, togeth­er form­ing an open roof struc­ture. Dur­ing the day, ‘Sun­ny Shad­ow’ receives a lot of sun­light, cre­at­ing pleas­ant, dynam­i­cal­ly coloured shad­ows on the ground. After sun­set, ‘Sun­ny Shad­ows’ illu­mi­nates the ter­race, cre­at­ing a wel­com­ing and warm atmos­phere.

Who For ter­race vis­i­tors to enjoy dynam­ic col­or shades dur­ing the day and illu­mi­na­tion at night. It offers a sus­tain­able, self-suf­fi­cient light source.

Why As a result of the cur­rent ener­gy cri­sis and advanc­ing cli­mate change, it is impor­tant to dis­cov­er a new method in ener­gy gen­er­a­tion. Project ‘Sun­ny Shad­ows’ demon­strates a sim­ple and inno­v­a­tive use of recent pho­to­volta­ic tech­nol­o­gy. The pos­si­ble appli­ca­tions reach from large-scale urban use to pri­vate use, show­ing how eas­i­ly pho­to­voltaics can be inte­grat­ed in one’s dai­ly sur­round­ings.

How The shades can be col­or­ful and move dynam­i­cal­ly due to the col­or, trans­paren­cy, and min­i­mal weight of ASCA’s pho­to­volta­ic films. Mean­while, the film gen­er­ates and stores ener­gy in each mod­u­lar ele­ment and illu­mi­nates the ter­race at night.

Where Focused to be locat­ed at the Wien­tal­ter­rasse (Vien­na Val­ley ter­race) in the heart of Vien­na, the Wien­tal­ter­rasse serves as a meet­ing point in the neigh­bour­hood. Also pos­si­ble to use indi­vid­u­al­ly or in mul­ti­tude in any oth­er place.
