SMIT is very pleased to announce that Solar Ivy will be installed at the Environment Museum of the Montreal Biosphere!
The Montreal Biosphere’s Environment Museum is housed in a Buckminster Fuller dome originally constructed for the 1967 World’s Fair. The museum presents exhibitions and installations focusing on issues related to conservation, biodiversity and sustainability and is an important environmental education institution.
The installation of Solar Ivy will add diversity to the museum’s platform of educational exhibits and features around renewable energy. Solar Ivy was selected for its unique aesthetic and analysis-driven design. Solar Ivy will challenge visitors’ preconceptions of how solar panels look and the spaces they occupy.
SMIT is excited by the opportunity this installation presents: to engage larger communities in conversations about renewable energy technology and the role it plays in our lives and societies.
Stay tuned for images of the final installation!
