The project Blaue Sonne (Blue Sun) investigates the possibility of reinventing a new symbolism for the blue crane by converting the old obsolete industrial heritage in a new infrastructure collecting energy and providing a point of connection and gathering for the public space surrounding it. In this way the Blaue Sonne becomes a new landmark for a new culture of living in harmony with nature and its resources.
