The architecture and design studio NUDES, which usually uses natural and sustainable materials in their architecture, has recently designed a “solar tree”- a net-zero energy observatory tower to combat issues surrounding climate change. Have a look at SURFACES REPORTER (SR)'s complete report on this:
The Solar Tree is a distinct, eco-friendly, self-supporting structure that displays a modular architecture consisting of prefabricated “cells” made of wood and steel.
These “cells” can also house lightweight “solar leaves” that generate energy and make the structure more autonomous.
The top of this vertical, modular, and leafy observatory tower is covered by an overcast sky and an all-weather glass capsule. Just similar to the studio’s forest school proposal, this project is shaped by a tubular form with several protruding decks or balconies.
These projecting balconies or decks allow people to enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.
The main objective of the firm was to design something which is not only innovative and sustainable but also in sync with nature and surrounding landscape.
Project Name: The Solar Tree
Design Team: Nuru Karim, Salai V, Aditya Jain, Anuj Modi
