A team of British designers and artists have proposed a floating tourist attraction that would gather solar energy in Copenhagen Harbor as the Danish city works to become carbon-neutral by the year 2025. The 12-story-high structure is designed like a giant sea duck with lightweight steel covered in solar panels. This “energy duck” would by day collect the sun’s rays and by night bask the harbour in LED lights that change colour in rhythm with the hydro turbines inside it.
The supersized bird was developed by artists and designers Hareth Pochee, Adam Khan, Louis Leger, and Patrick Fryer as part of a competition run by the Land Art Generator Initiative, a project that aims to integrate art with sustainable design to come up with alternative energy solutions.
A fabulous concept!
