Snakes are not among the animals that I love or favor. Their cold body and aggressive appearance make me think of fear and danger. They usually amaze you through their vivid colors, huge dimensions or interesting way of living. They can inspire you violence, frightness, cunning or power. It depends on how much you like or do not like these animals.
The Architects Zechner & Zechner were inspired by the features of a cobra and designed this solar building on the peaks of Alps Mountains in Austria.Actually, it is a big terminal that takes the shape of an impressive and dangerous snake called cobra. It has an observation deck which resembles the mouth of the snake and its base which represents its body.
Although this building looks aggressive like the surrounding area it is an eco- friendly terminal. It uses solar thermal collectors for its own production of energy.
Zechner & Zechner Architects built this amazing building and they were appreciated for this project by winning a railway construction contest.Now you can see a friendly “snake” which does not seem to be aggressive to our environment but it still can surprise us with its amazing and impressive appearance.
