Solar design – Marjan van Aubel
Integrating new techniques and smart design in a future-proof, energy-neutral city
What is the role of new techniques and smart design in a future-proof, energy-neutral city? AIR invites solar designer Marjan van Aubel to give her view on integrating extreme energy efficiency into smart design. As a reaction to the pressing energy transition, designers cross boarders of product design, architecture and technology to create an integrated, low-energy living environment. Innovation in solar power as an alternative source of energy not only becomes more urgent, but also more available in our sun drenched cities. Solar panels on roofs are currently the only way this energy-source is designed, often invisible on roofs.
Solar designer Marjan van Aubels’ innovative practice spans the fields of sustainability, design and technology. Her work promotes extreme energy efficiency through design and paints the image of a possible future city. For het project Current Window, stained glass that generates energy, she won the WIRED Product Innovation Award. Architects and landscape designers join the conversation on the integration of solar design.
After Marjan van Aubel a panel discussion is lead by Lucas Verweij. Part of the panel are Sander van Schaik, (Personal Architecture) with their project ‘Zon in de Stad’ and Eric-Jan Pleijster (Lola Landscape Architects) on the possibilities of a rooftop landscape. Part of the discussion as well are Lianne Polinder (Design Innovation Group) and Corine Erades (Blijstroom).
