The new building of the AZV Erdinger Moos, designed by Architekturwerkstatt Vallentin, excels through its futuristic design and the combination of down-to-earth and innovative materials. One remarkable design element are the 84 m² striking, individually designed photovoltaic facade elements, which have been attached to the railings of the floating corridor in intervals of 2 m. A total of 26 glass-glass modules Sunovation eFORM Crystal with polycrystalline, blue solar cells were installed. The solar elements with a size of 3.25 m² have a capacity of 454 Wp each.
One particular feature of the semi transparent BIPV modules is the finishing of the rear side of the modules by means of selective screen-print. By imitating the front cell optics, the module surface visible from the inside ideally integrates itself into the design concept. The highlight, however, are the two curved photovoltaic elements on the curved structure of the triangular shaped atrium. The approximately 3m² large glass-glass modules are bent in a radius of approximately 3.5m. By means of their adaptive design, they perfectly harmonize with the building line and optimally blend into the overall design.
Glass-glass modules of the Sunovation eFORM series are exclusively manufactured project-specifically. Architects and planners have thus various design possibilities for a perfect integration of these solar building elements. Available are individual sizes, shapes, cell- and module colors. The modules can be supplied semi-transparent, homogeneous monochrome as well as contrasting in almost every color.
The new building at Erdinger Moos was carried out in minimal-energy construction with an extremely heat-insulating envelope, comfort ventilation system and photovoltaic systems in the facade and on the roof.
