Solar Energy Meets Art: Solar Labyrinth

At the request of Dr. Allan Berger from the Bright Eyes and Bushy Tails Animal Hospital, this solar energy production system, designed by Anthony Castronovo; in order to bring aesthetics, art and technology together.

The system, which is an extension of 40 kW solar energy installation on the roof of the hospital, is designed as a creative solar sculpture that will contribute to the visual presence of solar energy.

At the same time, the creation which is assumed as public art due to its location, was created with the inspiration of the Minotor, the half human half bull of the ancient Greek myth. Each of the 14 panels on the inside of the building contains a different animal figure surrounded by a sine wave pattern to show the sun’s path. Also, it was decided to put the statue of Minotor at the center of the labyrinth as the source of inspiration.
This design, which brings animals, clean energy and art together, shows that solar energy can take place not only at the roofs, but also in gardens, parks and streets with their aesthetic designs.
