Wind Pavilion

Student Designs

Due to the expansion of land-use requirements, land is gradually being covered with high-rise buildings while the natural environment decreases. A high density of buildings causes wind tunnels in cities, which can be dangerous. However, the Wind Pavilion collects building-generated wind and turns it into electricity; the power is stored inside each column. Urban solutions such as Wind Pavilion combine the utility of water, light, wind and temperature to allow people a more comfortable public space.
