Solar panels and Art in the same sentence? Art blended into our day-to-day objects like solar panels, a collaboration between artists and scientists, Watt is Art is a glimpse into what is possible in the realm of future architecture and building design. The exhibition will be displayed at EPFL Pavilions until April 25th.

As our world slowly finds its way towards sustainability, EPFL Pavilions is excited to showcase the groundbreaking work of Compáz and Be-Smart, an EU research project that aims to step up the deployment of building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and cut their costs by 75% by 2030. The project was launched in October 2018 in response to EU regulations that require new buildings to be nearly energy neutral.

They’ve imagined “boldly-artistic multifunctional solar panels” that are meant to bust through preconceptions associated with what solar panels can do and what they could do.

Watt is Art opened on March 26th with a virtual tour of the exhibition. and will be diplayed until April 25th at EPFL Pavilions A.
