Park & Freeload

This parking garage Wolvenhoek is the result of the first oil crisis in the early seventies. We can now speak of a third energy crisis. We consume too much energy.

During a visit to the roof of parking garage Wolvenhoek it is immediately apparent, the elevator is blocking the view. The first operation is therefore lowering the lift house to recover the view with the panoramic vista on St. John Cathedral. It creates a beautiful square on the roof of the city. Cheap electricity is the future. The roof of the garage is planted with solar panels. The panels rotate with the sun as leaves of a tree and cools the building by its shadow. Reflective stripes mark the square and keep the building cool. It is paid parking but your electric car is here free of charge. Every third Sunday of the month there is a car boot sale for every citizen of Den Bosch on this easily accessible square.
