Project: LikhAs: Renewable Energy Research and Development Complex
School: Design 10 Architectural Thesis Proposal for National University-Manila College of Architecture
Designer: Ian Espadero Hibe
Site: Brgy. Turbina Calamba Laguna Philippines
The LikhAs Facility Complex is designed with a purpose of studying new renewable energy resources and identifies feasible areas here in the Philippines where the renewable energy technologies could effectively be utilized. Developed new experiments and technologies and applying a research to solve the problems relative to energy, economical and environmental problems and promote the use of renewable energy by giving seminars, hands on training and tours on different renewable energy facilities that would be located around the site.
One of the best known characteristics of all Renewable Energy is its ability to renew its self in a short period of time. It is infinite because of its cycle. Its ability to renew itself makes it Infinite because of a fast and continues Cycle. By using its main characteristics, the concept of Infinite Cycle is derived. The name
―Infinitus Cyclus‖ are Latin words means Infinite (Infinitus) and Cycle (Cyclus).The proposed will be formed in an Infinity symbol and Cycle symbol to represent the Renewable Energy‘s character which is Infinite because of continues cycle.
