Zephyr / platform screen door

Zephyr

Even before the train enters, strong wind blows on the subway platform. Using this wind, Zephyr is a sustainable platform screen doors adapted to provide passengers safety and amusement at the same time. Zephyr consisted of spinnable circular panels, which convert energy from the power created by the rotation caused by the wind. this energy is used throughout the process of closing and opening of the screen doors. Through this project, instead of the previous 'un-interesting' platform, We are suggesting a 'different' platform that provides a pleasant breeze for the passengers waiting for the train.
