An award winning eco-sculpture designed to demonstrate sustainable energy production within an oasis for city dwellers. It is environmentally sustainable and adaptable for different locations and uses.

The 12-metre high kinetic structure mimics the design of a growing flower, with photovoltaic ‘petals’ opening in response to the sun, utilizing light to generate power. Supplemented power from a hydrogen fuel cell and wind turbine, and the use of harvested rainwater for irrigation and cooling, make it self-sufficient. At night the entire structure is transformed into a light sculpture. See video of Urban Oasis here

Urban Oasis has been sited in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Cannes and formed the central feature of a gold medal winning show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
