Architects don’t like solar panels because they look ugly. This is why the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts developed a procedure to make the look beautiful: They become pictures!
After introduction speeches from representatives of the BCN, Mario El-Khoury, CEO of CSEM, and Laurent Perret, photographer, about his photographic work in this context, the photographic solar panels were unveiled by the people whose portraits had been taken by Laurent Perret. Fantastic work by Kaleo, CSEM and BCN!
Dr. Stephen Wittkopf, professor at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts HSLU and managing director at ÜserHuus Ltd, and Walter Schmid, Walter Schmid Ltd, Kompogas Ltd and Umweltarena Ltd spoke the opening words for the inauguration of the “Swissness” PV facade, which was made possible by a cooperation of HSLU and several companies: ÜserHuus Ltd, Glas Trösch Ltd, BeNetz Ltd and Schweizer Metallbau Ltd. After photo shooting, one group enjoyed Stephen Wittkopf’s technical explanation while another group went on a tour around the Umweltarena’s exhibitions. Afterwards all were invited for an aperitif and networking.
