A three-dimensional solar façade inspired by the Italian bugnato
(2013)

Solar Bugnato is a solar façade system inspired by the three-dimensional texture of the Italian type of masonry called bugnato, particularly the one of Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara.

It combines solar cells with mirrors that enhance their performance by acting as concentrators while they reflect the surrounding urban environment in motion.
