The Revolutionarium by Michael Jantzen is a conceptual design of a special kind of prefabricated, modular, interactive, functional art structure, which is designed to stimulate the creativity of its occupants. The prefabricated structure will be constructed from sustainably grown wood products and other green materials. The structure is 26 feet in diameter and 14 feet high and has a 12ft diameter steel and glass cylindrical structure in the center. The structure consists of four wooden screens, which can be pulled around the cylinder, either to control the amount of sunlight entering the area or to control the degree of privacy required by the people on the inside. What amazes us most, as always, is the use of a small vertical axis wind turbine to generate renewable electricity for the Revolutionarium. If the conditions where the structure is installed aren’t windy enough, solar panels can be added to supplement the wind turbine. The renewable energy generated by these systems is stored in an underground battery pack.
