Fascinating Solar Bell in the Sky by Tomás Saraceno

Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno created this 5-meter tall structure made of reflective panels and lightweight carbon fiber tubing. Referred to as ‘Solar Bell’, Saraceno based this architecture in the sky on the tetrahedral kite model invented by Alexander Graham Bell. The artist was inspired by his vision of what will be the living environment in the future and considered the possibility of flying cities. The structure is driven entirely by wind energy and built according to the latest insights in light-weight materials and kite technology.
