Karim Mahmoud Elnabawy Balbaa Designed for Site #1 in Dubai, near Ras al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.
Design Submission for the 2010 Land Art Generator Initiative Design Competition
Artist’s descriptive text: Feel nature, love nature. It will never fail you. In order to solve problems we must first love nature. The inspiration must come out from the natural powers itself. With windscape and sunscape all around, nature deals directly with the form, and controls it.
The two towers play an important role in attracting people to the site with their strange look and height that can be seen from any part of the city. Each one is 140m high. With steel lines, it can inspire attendance with its visual effects at night, its movement, and the sky view.
The form lines on site were inspired by the desert sands, the form rises out of the sand. Its shape is fluid.
Inspiration Integrating science technologies with some new artistic shapes and forms to inspire viewers and make art from science and natural powers.
Solar Chimney With two towers instead of only one, the solar chimney was designed to take full advantage of hot air and the solar radiation there, as it works on the famous three principles: 1-The use of the sun’s radiation to heat a large body of air – the collection area is the main form that the towers comes out of it. 2-Hot air rises through the chimney. 3-Movement of air as energy source to drive large turbines to generate electricity
Electric Carbon Shafts After the air rises on both chimneys, wind shafts were considered inside and outside of the chimney, the inside air will move outside. The shafts which were made out of carbon, will generate electricity by piezoelectric movement.
Wind Turbines Wind generators are easy integrated with the form like the other natural elements in site.
Photovoltaic cells Placed on top of the form to receive most of sun rays.
Wind waves Inspired from water waves , the same techniques were used to generate power from waves, but not water waves, it’s Wind, hits the elements between the two towers, which makes the inner circular cylinder spin generating electricity.

- How To Generate Electricity From Wind
www.WindEnergyGuide.net – How To Generate Electricity From Wind – Nowadays, wind energy is primarily employed to generate electricity. Wind is called a renewable energy source simply because the wind will blow as lengthy as the sun shines. Wind Energy Basics Therefore, a turbine operating at a website with an average wind speed of 12 mph

Above Ground Power Lines: an Indirect Source of CO2 Pollution Several power companies plant trees in an attempt to capture a portion of the Carbon Dioxide emissions of coal fired power plants. Some have banded together as PowerTree Carbon Company LLC, a cooperative tree planting project. We have recognized that CO2 emissions are bad and that
- How We Can Use Energy from Waves, Tides and Currents? – Updated Article With Extra Information
Amongst the multitude of renewable energy sources that are being touted as having great potential, there is ocean wave energy and tidal energy (energy from tides and energy from currents). Every year, advancements are made in these fields which are making ocean wave energy and tidal energy increasingly economically and environmentally feasible.

But Obama’s promise of preserving natural resources and jump-starting the economy ran smack into the reality of this economically struggling town of about 16,000 about 30 miles east of Des Moines. The wind energy plant where he spoke, and received a tour beforehand, is a shadow of what it replaced – a Maytag Corp. appliances
