The Solar Biennale envisions and critically reflects on the future of solar energy. In a series of four Solar Lectures together with Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam, we will dive into the PERSONAL, SOCIAL, SPATIAL and ENVIRONMENTAL lenses.
- One Sun Fits AllHow does solar design shap everyday practices?23 Mar, Pakhuis de Zwijger | Amsterdam
This is the first event in a series of four on solar design by Solar Biennale. During this first evening we explore our personal relations with (solar) energy and the sun. The question we will address is how solar energy can generate a closer relationship with our natural environment and circadian rhythms, allowing us to exchange the Anthropocene for an ecocentric world.
- Designing a Solar DemocracyWhat new relationships with the sun does solar design enable?28 Apr, Pakhuis de Zwijger | Amsterdam
During the second Solar Lecture by The Solar Biennale we explore the social relations with energy and the sun. The sun is there for everyone to enjoy. But how do we harvest her power in a democratic way?
- Solar CitiesHow can solar power become the new building material?30 Jun, Pakhuis de Zwijger | Amsterdam
During the fourth and last Solar Lecture, we explore solar through the lens of the built environment. How will our future cities look like and function when all surfaces are harvesting energy from the sun?
- Creating ecocentric solar landscapesWhat can solar power do so we don't kill our environment?25 May, Pakhuis de Zwijger | Amsterdam
During this third Solar Lecture by The Solar Biennale we explored the relation between solar and our environment. How positive is the impact of solar on our planet when we cover what is left of our natural surroundings with vast solar fields? How does this affect our landscape?
