New Play Structure to have a solar feature


Playscape designer Ben Gilbert of the Agency of Sculpture has put forward a unique design feating recycled conveyor belts that come from an old coal mine along with solar panels in the shape of giant flowers suspended on poles high above the playground.  The concept that Ben calls coal flowers will highlight the blossoming of solar from the past depence on coal for our electricity.

The Cubbies Committee was approached by Richmond based company Clean Technologies late last year when their staff took a collection up at the staff Christmas function and donated it to Cubbies to support our work.  Clean Technologies are working with Ben Gilbert to approach solar panel manufacturers for the playscape project.
