Parasol Modular- Where Art meets Science to save the World!

What happens when art and science are combined?

The parasol, which dates back to ancient Egypt, was first used as protection against the scorching heat of the sun; its name comes from “para” meaning to stop or shield and “sol” meaning sun. Parasol Modular is a collection of artful structures that integrate colorful photovoltaic panels into a modular building system. This alternative to stagnant solar arrays allows owners to enjoy the beauty of filtered sunlight as well as gain the benefits of harnessing the sun’s energy.

Who would have thought that playing with a child’s toy would inspire an idea for a solar carport for electric vehicles? This is what happens when architect Kerrik Wessel plays with his children. Conceived with a child’s imagination and detailed with an architect’s expertise, Parasol Modular is an artful approach to modular building systems.
