Eco Conscious Architecture Salvages Renewable Energy From Viaducts
The ancestral home of the aqueduct debuts a cutting edge renewable energy concept
The Solar Wind architectural concept in Southern Italy harnesses existing structures to strike a fine balance between preservation and future eco-sustainability.
Creators Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino proposed a wind turbine system which would generate 36 million kilowatts of energy a year to a competition designed to find an alternative to demolishing the Southern Italian Viaducts.
Though it took second place in the competition, the proposed road would also make use of the increasingly popular solar panel roadway scheme, bringing the total amount of energy generated to 40 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year, enough to power 15,000 homes.
