Volvo's Fold-Out Solar Charger Looks Like Sci-Fi Couture

•, By Antony Ingram
Solar panels are great, but they can be a bit... well, bland sometimes. We can't argue with their benefits, but unless you've a keen eye for photography, they aren't really works of art.

Apart from Synthesis Design + Architecture's (SDA) solar pavilion of course, because that's most definitely a work of art.

It's called the Pure Tension Pavilion, the result of the "Switch to Pure Volvo" competition launched by Volvo Car Italia and organized by international architecture magazine The Plan.

The brief was to construct a temporary pavilion that expressed "a strong and creative identity" to showcase the Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid--the world's first diesel plug-in hybrid production car--at open-air fairs and presentations.
