THE CHICAGO PRIZE "MINE THE GAP COMPETITION"
THE SOLAR SPIRAL ENTRY ©, May 2010

Mixed Use Vertical Solar (MUVS) for urban gaps.

The SOLAR SPIRAL's PV panels generate free, clean, quiet solar power - suitable for any site with vertical southern exposure.  Producing more than a Megawatt of power from 5000+ solar panels, the Solar Spiral integrates a power plant with community facility for performance, conference and exhibition space.  Other configurations might include residential and commercial use in this new design idiom, each with its unique PV skyline sculpture.  MUVS mixes community, commercial and private usage with non-invasive power production, a uniquely urban solution.
