The Solar Pavilion is the final piece of the Solar Biennale, opening during Dutch Design Week. Designed by V8 Architects and Marjan van Aubel Studio it is imagined as a space to experience the poetic power of the sun. The pavilion is an energetic meeting place where visitors can experience the sensory nature of solar energy. Opening: 22 October 2022.
Like a ‘solar cloth’ the Solar Pavilion harvests the sun’s energy, which is then used to spread the sun’s heat in the dark space under the ‘solar cloth’ by means of infrared radiation. Natural phenomena are connected here with technological innovations, and visitors are offered an impressive experience as they stand half in darkness and half in light. The Solar Pavilion is designed by V8 architects together with Marjan van Aubel Studio, who worked together with Kameleon Solar on the development of a unique set of colourful solar panels.
