Get recharged at the Solar Pavilion
Designed by V8 Architects and Marjan van Aubel Studio, the power of the sun can actually be seen during the Dutch Design Week at the Solar Pavilion. Energy and heat are generated on site, using the latest techniques and aesthetic solar panels: a sensory experience showing the beauty of a sustainable future.
‘Solar energy needs a new perspective, something more personal and that is part of our culture. It's time for solar design and this pavilion demonstrates this change.’
Marjan van Aubel
Placing people at the heart of the solar revolution, the Solar Pavilion is an energetic meeting place to experience the poetic, sensory nature of solar energy. Built as the central pavilion for Dutch Design Week 2022, it turns the harvesting of the sun into a new type of space and surface. Visitors can experience that solar Photo-Voltaic panels can be more than ordinary technical elements and it explores new means of creating solar harvesting surfaces.
The Solar Pavilion is the closing piece of the Solar Biennale 2022. V8 Architects and Marjan van Aubel Studio collaborated with Kameleon Solar on the development of a unique set of colorful solar panels, The simple form of the pavilion consists of four robust steel masts between which a sheet of glass solar panels is stretched. It is fully circular and uses borrowed standard building and energy components that will be returned to the owners and partners. As a result, every part of this pavilion can be disassembled and reused afterwards.
