Renewable energy generating art installations

Here are some art installations that have beautiful design but they also are examples of best energy savings.

The Lunar cubit is the winning design by the New York based team of Robert Flottemesch, Jen DeNike, Johanna Ballhaus, and Adrian P. De Luca for the 2010 Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) design competition. The pyramids are covered in solar panels that will provide energy for about 250 homes.The monuments will be arranged in circular form to create a huge lunar calendar.The proportions of the pyramids match those of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
The solar powered dunescape by designer Khourvy Levit Fong creates electricity also. The construction has mirror polished stones towards the sun. Concave eye-shaped surfaces reflect light upon pipelines, superheating their liquid contents and powering electricity generating steam turbines housed beneath their crests.
Windnest art installation that you can see below ( the picture with tubes) is used to produce energy from both solar
and wind power.Great structure!
The solar sunflowers are built in Texas. They capture the solar energy but in the same time they function like huge umbrellas for the people of Austin that can hide from the sun during days.
Apart all these, there are eco-art installations that provide energy due to the footsteps pressure of kids jumping around in the park.
