This award winning eco-sculpture demonstrates sustainable energy production within an innovative oasis for city dwellers. It is totally environmentally sustainable and adaptable for different locations and uses.
The 12-metre high kinetic structure mimics the design of a growing flower with photovoltaic ‘petals’ opening in response to the sun, utilizing light to generate power. Supplemented power from a hydrogen fuel cell and wind turbine, and the use of harvested rainwater for irrigation and cooling, make it self-sufficient. At night the entire structure is transformed into a light sculpture.
Urban Oasis has been sited in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Cannes and formed the central feature of a gold medal winning show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
