Wind Shaped Pavilion

Architect Michael Jantzen has created a building that responds to the wind, changing the shape of the building while creating useable energy. Visit his website HERE.

“The Wind Shaped Pavilion is a design proposal for a large fabric structure that can be used as a public or private pavilion. As a lightweight fabric structure, the wind slowly and randomly rotates each of the six segments around a central open support frame. This continually alters the shape of the pavilion, while at the same time generating electrical power for its nighttime illumination.”
