The Wind Pavilion of Architect Michael Jantzen is a design proposal by which to create a large fabric structure that can be used as a public or private pavilion.
Jantzen’s Wind Pavilion fuses art, architecture, and renewable energy, and is literally head-turning. 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 night-time illumination. The shape of the structure starts out as a relatively symmetrical form. Then the wind begins to alter that shape randomly, with only a slim chance of ever returning to its original symmetry.
If the structures scale and the materials were to change, it could become an apartment complex, and or some other commercial building. In this case, the occupants could take control and rotate the segments to adjust to changing desires or needs, such as weather conditions, best views, etc. For more information on the Wind Shaped Pavilion and the other amazing designs of
