23 Michael Jantzen Marvels

From Spindly Sculptures to Sustainable Structures

— May 5, 2012 — Eco
From their swirly-twirly design elements to their eco-friendly sustainability, a growing collection of Michael Jantzen marvels are at the forefront of pushing boundaries when it comes to thinking about alternative energy sources.

Each piece is as appealing to the eye as it is functional and the artist and inventor combines both artistic and architectural elements into each of his constructions.

His structures all feature self-sustaining and self-powered elements that seek new and interesting solutions to finding more effective ways to power the world we live in. Solar powered and wind based sources of energy are at the crux of many of his designs that power not only the building itself, but sometimes also provide energy to outside sources as well.
