Powering up is a problem that must be faced by owners and users of electrically powered vehicles. You need to have access to the power grid.
A team of visionaries and designers with Synthesis Design + Architecture has proposed a solution that can be adopted in high sunshine. The skylight umbrella is covered by solar panels. The large surface allows the installation of many photovoltaic cells and at the same time it allows the vehicle to be hidden in the shade.
The project was created at the Volvo competition: “Switch to Pure Volvo” by Pavilion Design. The creator of the project is Alvin Huang, who has won multiple awards at various international design contests. The solar pavilion proposed by him is to be built of carbon fibers, resistant to damage and destruction of polycarbonate and polyethylene plastics in which solar panels will be incorporated.
