Exciting new architecture project being built in the City south
The eastern tower features a passive solar design (a heliostat installation) extending from the upper levels on a monumental cantilever. The heliostat incorporates an innovative system of fixed and motorized mirrored panels designed to capture sunlight and redirect it into the retail atrium and onto the landscaped terraces. At night the heliostat’s integrated lighting will display video interpretations of Sydney landscapes.
Although I’m a little concerned how they would work. As the mirrors are positioned horizontal Otto the ground , How does sunlight fall upon them? Are those mirrors on the smaller tower and will they reflect light back up into the mirrors above them ? That would produce too much glare for the residences located below the heliostats. Are the heliostats mounted onto a large arm that will raise them up to vertical? Cant wait to find out? Come back later for more info…Tags: architecture, Heliostats, reflecting light
