CO2 Cube / Bonanno + Cornubert

As the trend of “going green” takes over society, concerns about carbon emission is constantly growing, making both architects and those not in the profession aware of the implications of their actions. With their new installation, Alfio Bonanno and Christophe Cornubert have made a 27 foot cube of an actual ton of CO2. Dubbed the “CO2 Cube”, the piece is a representation of the amount of carbon dioxide emitted each month by the average person in an industrialized country, or in the case of the United States, every two weeks. The piece will create a strong visual impact on those passing by the Saint Jørgen Lake in front of the Copenhagen Planetarium.

More images and more about the cube after the break.

The Cube will act as a multimedia installation, screening video footage, real time data and statistics, images, and smart solutions with a system developed by Obscura Digital. Supported by Millennium ART, the curator of UN conferences over the past several years, the project also has plans to install additional cubes in iconic locations all over the globe during the conference to share this educational installation with all.
