The aim of the “Solar Loop” is to expose as much surface as possible to the southern solar rays. The shape comes directly from the solar diagrams, and deals easily with the sun, following it with the best angle almost like a frozen artificial sunflower. The aesthetic of the sculpture is the result of this dialogue that becomes synthesis between the solar power and Freshkills park. This landmark will organize the park life inside and outside. Potentially it could be thought as a no-dimension element that could be multiplied in different sizes on the park’s needs, to yield energy and living spaces.
