GALERIE UNTER STROM POTSDAM 2012 — This pavilion is a prototype for the possible use of photovoltaic technology in space-shaping architectural elements.
Wall panels measuring 4 metres high and 1 metre wide are used to form all the facades of the 35-metre-long building. The panels are held in a structural steel frame.
On the outside the photovoltaic elements are positioned behind a continuous pane of glass. On the inner face the copper bands are visible behind the glass, forming a finely articulated wall cladding.
