Projet • By MYD studioRural

Energy Lab | Solar Structure

The original program was to create a solar structure to house an 8-panel photovoltaic array. Taking aesthetic cues from the agricultural nature of the site, the design consists of open wood-framing, meeting at an asymetrical gable, at an angle located for optimal solar exposure. MYD also proposed the incorporation of a modular green roof system, as an additional feature and educational resource for the intended use of the space as an outdoor classroom and exhibition area for sustainable events and programs. Upon contacting regional vendors, contractors and construction professionals, we discovered a shared, enthusiastic desire to participate in this community-oriented project. The Energy Lab was made possible by donations of services fr... En savoir plus

Boiler building II

A simple box rises up from the ground, angled to face the sun. This second Boiler is a development of ideas that came up working with the first one in 2008. Continued use of mesh fence, this time as the outer layers of the facade. Getting closer you feel the textile character underlined by the buttons keeping the distance from the basic facade. All technologies have been compressed and moved indoors.
The roof of solar cells is responsible for all the energy necessary to run the plant, except for pellets and ever "padding" with oil. En savoir plus
