Solar Skywalks

World's metropolises - like Beijing - have a large number of footbridges traversing busy traffic arteries. They are often unattractive, downgrading the overall urban impression. Our idea of cladding the footbridges with aesthetic, power generating PV modules and transforming them into attractive city spots is not only sustainable, but creates a sculptural diversity that becomes an eye-catcher in the cityscape. E-car or E-bike charging stations under the footbridges utilize the solar energy directly on site.
