In this "tree-like"building-complex, solar energy will be gathered at the top and delivered downwards into the building.

As the briefing mentions the inner child, I wanted to make a fantastical addition. I have decided to build my core idea around enhanced plants that have the abilitiy to generate electricty from solar energy.

A Desirable Future - THU Golden Ticket Challenge 2019

This is my entry to the THU Golden Ticket Challenge 2019. The topic was "a desirable future" with an emphasis on our inner child.
In the desirable future I am picturing, society has transitioned entirely to renewable energies and changed its society values in order to stop climate change.
Endless growth, competition and hyperconsumerism were replaced by a society that thinks and acts cooperatively on a global scale.
My illustration takes place in a self-sustaining city/building complex in that world.

As the briefing mentions the inner child, I wanted to make a fantastical addition.
I have decided to build my core idea around enhanced plants that have the abilitiy to generate electricty from solar energy.
That way the "treetop" of the building could be made of actual foliage.

The point I want to stress is not that we found an „easy solution“ to save our climate, but rather find a visual way to communicate humanity taking care of nature and living in symbiosis with it.
