Project overview:

Petal Power Place is a framework for Agri voltaic symbiosis, which aims to address the climate crisis by exploring ideas of decentralized renewable energy systems that are beautifully integrated into urban environments and share infrastructure with urban farming. The project aims to maximize the utility of existing structures by combining innovative technologies, and aims to showcase the integration of renewable energy in an organic and biophilic form that can foster water conservation. The project is centered around the concept of a blooming flower, which symbolizes the beauty of change and the change in our approach, life-styles and environments that will be shaped by the process of global energy transition.

It is designed to be scalable to any site receiving sunlight, and is designed integrally to the Spinelli Park masterplan. The sculptures have different plug-and-play components that allow for a versatile use across the park.
