Solaris will be a large and beautiful solar-powered light. The stained-glass design will be inspired by the colours of the local environment and wildlife.
During the daytime Solaris will be illuminated by the sun. After sunset solar-powered internal lights will illuminate the colourful design with gently changing patterns of light. These patterns will respond to the rhythms and changes of environmental conditions and visitor presence.
