Quoted from http://www.designboom.com:
“Giant umbrellas, with a design based on the principles of sunflowers, will provide moveable shade in the day, store heat, then close and release the heat at night in the plaza of a new eco-city in the united arab emirates.
the ‘sunflower umbrellas’ are one aspect of the winning design by the international practice laboratory for visionary architecture (LAVA) for the city centre for masdar in the UAE – the world’s first zero carbon, zero waste city powered entirely by renewable energy sources.”
