augmented urban service vector by richard saunders from uk

designer's own words:

creating vectors of augmented infrastructure, the a.u.s.v provides a solution to the ever growing demand for parking within the city. its objectives lie in the unification and accessibility of urban services such as lighting, surveillance and communication.

a piezoelectric system forms the basis for elevated parking. utilizing the vehicles potential energy in its weight to produce sustainable power, a vehicle will be placed onto a gyroscopic platform. this slowly lowers throughout its stay, harnessing said energy to power street lights, hydraulic arms and surveillance equipment.
