The center is also designed to incorporate passive solar heating and cooling and collect rainwater [1] through its roof. The central spire feature an observation deck, and it’s ringed by a green roof featuring trees and circular benches for visitors to take a rest in the shade. A large LED [2] screen would also be located near the top of the structure for media exhibits dealing with solar science, helping to appeal to visitors to spread interesting information about the sun.
