Waltz with Zero-Carbon Rotational Building
Zero-Carbon Rotational Building applies reducing, reusing, and recycling - the so-called 3R principle - to achieve Zero-Carbon consumption and zero emissions in buildings.
Zero-Carbon Rotational Building applies reducing, reusing, and recycling - the so-called 3R principle - to achieve Zero-Carbon consumption and zero emissions in buildings. The project base is located in Chuansha Town, Shanghai. The Zero-Carbon Building is located on roof of Building One on the left side of the base entrance.
Zero-Carbon technology in China is not a zero-start. In order to avoid the homogenization of the product, a rotatable Zero-Carbon building was created. On the rooftop of the building, there are 56 solar PV panels installed in 4 rows at a slant angle of 25 degrees. The solar trajectory can be tracked through a uniform and intermittent rotation of the entire building to maximize the efficiency of roof photovoltaic power generation, which is estimated to be increased by 10% -15%.
In order to improve the tracking accuracy, the building's rotation control adopts the closed-loop control mode. According to the time and tracking angle, the angle sensor gives feedback of the actual position angle of the building and constantly adjusts the building direction according to the feedback, which greatly improves the control precision and rotation safety.
The use of two gear teeth meshing with each other to transmit power and movement of the mechanical transmission can realize the rotation of the entire building. The energy consumption is only equivalent to a 180-watt light bulb energy consumption. Under normal maintenance, its can sustain as long as the building does, guaranteeing 50 years of service life.
Serialized and modularized design are applied in building components. Through modularization, the components are made of parts similar to LEGO, and then assembled into a small building module called "block." Next, bulks are constructed according to the specific design requirements and design conditions. In order to meet the uniqueness and particularity of buildings, some blocks can also be mutated to achieve the final architectural design. As long as the wrench can be used, you can install or demolish houses, simple and easy.
