The Sun Deck

The Sun Deck is a design proposal for a large public art gathering place structure that makes electricity from the sun for the local community. Visitors to the Sun Deck can also charge their electronic devices through the structure, and access special WIFI information from it. The structure is designed to be made of painted steel and concrete, with a large curved array of photovoltaic cells mounted on top of the Sun Deck used to convert sunlight into electricity. There are two large shaded spaces below the structure fitted with places to sit, and two more above those with two staircases for access. The Sun Deck is designed to be places into almost any kind of public space, but ideally into a public park.
