Building: Nobel sphere (2014 proposal)
Architect: SANAA
Location: Nobel center, Stockholm, Sweden

AE Interest: The large diameters provide height and unimpeded exposure to the sun, and also create temperature stratification within the volume which helps to circulate the air more easily; the geometry of a sphere, yields large enough perpendicular surface area for photovoltaic membranes, that when coupled with the other sustainable energy systems, it reaches a zero energy building; the retractable photovoltaic membranes act as shading for added thermal comfort but its transparency allows for continuous visibility towards the outside to always feel connected with the exterior environment.
