Comments Off on Michael Jantzen’s furniture can be transformed to suit changing styles

Michael Jantzen’s transformable chair and table can be swapped out and changed in order to suit your moods and changing style. The knobs can be turned on the chair and table and different colored and/or printed fabrics can be woven through the frames from one end to the other, transforming the look and/or function of each piece. The frames can be made of various eco-friendly materials including wood, metal, or bamboo. One frame can support many different looks and/or functions. Since one chair or table can become many different chairs or tables by simply changing out the fabric, fewer of the earth’s resources are used over time as styles change. + Michael Jantzen

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen Designs Solar-Powered Global Climate Change Pavilion

Prolific designer Michael Jantzen completed a conceptual proposal that uses engaging design to spur greater global climate change debate and education. Titled the Global Climate Change Pavilion, this large public structure houses research and interactive exhibits that explore the relationship between the earth and its rapidly warming climate. Wave-shaped canopies topped by solar panels surround the globular pavilion and provide shade and shelter. The solar-powered exhibition dome is made of self-cleaning photocatalytic concrete and is also designed with rainwater collection and reuse systems. + Michael Jantzen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Michael Jantzen’s Sun Rays Visitors Center Generates Solar Electricity in the Desert

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen’s Sun Rays Visitors Center Generates Solar Electricity in the Desert

Michael Jantzen has unveiled a conceptual design for the Sun Rays Visitor Center, a steel and concrete educational facility that doubles as a solar electric power plant in the desert. The off-grid facility generates electricity by converting the heat of the sun reflected and focused in hundreds of installed mirrors into steam. The Sun Rays Visitors Center’s yellow radial form was inspired by the way sun rays reflect off of the mirrors and the center also consists of a viewing platform, office space, and exhibition area. + Michael Jantzen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Michael Jantzen’s Pavilion of the Rising Sun Gathers Solar Energy for Local Communities

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen’s Pavilion of the Rising Sun Gathers Solar Energy for Local Communities

Michael Jantzen designed the Pavilion of the Rising Sun, a proposal for a large public space that gathers energy from the sun and distributes it out into the local community. The gathered energy is also used to illuminate the pavilion at night. Energy from the sunlight is converted into electricity through a large array of photovoltaic cells that are integrated into the top of the structure. 121 blue steel columns support the array of photovoltaic cells that also shade the space below. A large hemispheric curved space, representing the sun, is formed in the center of the pavilion defined by a series of yellow steel arches. The entire steel portion of the structure is supported and elevated on a concrete base defined by a series of perimeter steps. Symbolically, the yellow sun appears to be rising up into the blue sky, which is partially shaded by a grid of gathering dark clouds. The Pavilion of the Rising Sun is one in a series of functional art structures that strives to celebrate the use of alternative energy in the built environment. The designer hopes that the pavilion will be built and used in a public place like a park, for special events, and/or for just relaxing in the warmth of the rising sun. + Michael Jantzen The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Michael Jantzen’s Solar Eco-Aquaponic House is a Self-Sustaining Urban Farm

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen’s Solar Eco-Aquaponic House is a Self-Sustaining Urban Farm

Michael Jantzen ’s Eco-Aquaponic House is a cylindrical steel structure that creates a self-sustaining environment for growing fish and plants – waste generated by the fish is used to fertilize the crops. The building is equipped with glass and shade screens that rotate to adjust to different weather conditions. During hot weather the shade screens can be pulled around the plants to prevent overheating, while in the winter two insulating sections are positioned to protect the plants and fish from the cold.

Michael Jantzen’s Seed-Sowing Machines Plant Flowers in Response to Environmental Destruction

Comments Off on Michael Jantzen’s Seed-Sowing Machines Plant Flowers in Response to Environmental Destruction

Artist  Michael Jantzen  has released designs for a solar-powered seed-sowing machine that would plant flowers in response to evidence of environmental destruction. Placed in various locations around the world, these structures would detect signs of pollution and automatically release small quantities of flower seeds onto the ground below. The result is a paradox: the more flowers blooming around one of the apparatuses, the worse the environmental degradation in the surrounding area.
