• Blue Volcano Solar Stadium has a cloud that generates solar power

    With innovation clubbed with environment sensitivity at its peak, a new stadium at Zaberg designed by Croatia-based njiric+ arhitekti is unique in its own right. It is an amazing volcano shaped piece of architecture, circular, made of light-weighted materials, the ‘Blue Volacano’ as it has been nicknamed rises a little above the ground surface to surround the area within. Not giving it the heavy look, the building is made of light materials such as steel cables, EFTE membranes and a polycarbonate dome. An artificial hill holds up the building and is made up of recycled rubber. Some kind of ‘floating cloud’ covers the stadium. This cloud generates power for the stadium because of the light weight photovoltaic panels on its surface. There have been several eco stadiums developed in the past few months like the The Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya and many more. This is not just any other eco stadium; it definitely is a ‘smart’ eco stadium.
