Photovoltaic cells have seen a number of innovative uses recently, from the small scale – solar powered road signs to the large scale – a portable energy mill that provides power at disaster sites. Now, London-based architect Margot Krasojević has designed an ice skating rink that uses solar and geothermal power to freeze water, rather than environmentally harmful CO2-based refrigeration or energy-intensive mechanical refrigeration. Many of Krasojević’s projects highlight the intersection of design and natural resources. Her latest project sees the ice rink sited on a natural lake, surrounded by thermal hot springs, in the Kamchatka region of Russia’s Far…
