Urban planning is evolving to require fixtures to be as multifunctional as possible, which is what's observed with the 'Solar Pines' rest areas. Designed by HG-Architecutre in Seoul, South Korea, the 'Solar Pines' rest area is intended to be a way for citizens to take a rest while enjoying outdoor space. The artistic design of the 'Solar Pines' makes them look ornate and beautiful while allowing them to discreetly harness power from the sun.

The 'Solar Pines' rest areas are outfitted with solar panels in order to make energy generation possible without having to detract from the aesthetics of a public outdoor space. The 'Solar Pines' make a great solution to be utilized in public parks, urban plazas and virtually any other outdoor space within urban areas.
