Panel: Public Art of the Sustainable City
“Solar Artworks” combines art, architecture, design, science, and a common objective: how to make our cities more sustainable through public art. We can find solar artworks in different parts of the world, and their creators generally are multidisciplinary groups of specialists. In this conference we will see some of the most interesting examples of solar artworks studied in the frame of “Solar Artworks” to date, in particular how different the projects can be, and why they have been created.
