China: Utopia Garden Sets New Standard for Architectural Integration

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 10, 2012

 Utopia Garden The solar installations above the apartment blocks of the “Utopia Garden” Project in the Chinese city of Dezhou attract attention even from a distance. The 504 vacuum tube collectors have been placed horizontally in a massive metal casing that has the form of a wave and covers the entire roof of the building. The solar fields with a gross collector area of around 1,400 m² consist of pressurised heat-pipe vacuum tubes, which harness the sun on the roof and feed it into a central heating and cooling system that runs through the entire building complex.
