TOWER of Power
The shape of the design was inspired by the natural movements of nature, such as the trajectories of sun rays to the solar panel. The journey of sun beams towards the solar panel on top of the Tower of Power structure stimulated the investigation of the movements of nature. These movements include those such as the flowing of water, unravelling of plants, vegetation, shattering of rock, dispersion of gases, and general cycles of life. For this design the direct nature of sun rays, fluent path of water molecules and the fragmentation of stone or rock played an influence on the resulting design. We wanted to use the trajectories of these elements found in nature to create a form that culminates these natural qualities with the futuristic advancement of the solar panel, creating a unique architectural language and final design outcome.

A design and construction project for a solar-battery charging station to be used for charging mobile devices. With the system being embedded into a table with benches you can study or socialize all while charging your phone. This project will be the forefront of renewable energy impacting students lives publicly and will be the stepping stone for many future renewable power projects.
