The Solar City Tower is a concept envisaged by Zurich based architecture and design studio RAFAA. This structure was chosen in response to the initial proposal and it has the potential to generate enough energy for Rio de Janeiro as well as the Olympic village and a pumped seawater storage system to generate power at night.
The tower’s entrance area and the amphitheater can serve as a place for social gatherings and events. RAFAA’s goal is that a symbolic tower such like this can serve as a beginning point for a global green movement and also help make the 2016 Olympic Games more sustainable. Enjoy the photos below:
