Wind shaped pavillion – alternative energy house by Michael Jantzen

Monday, 30 July 2007

The Wind Shaped Pavilion by Michael Jantzen 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.
