Jeju island which is a windy island. Also it is a volcanic island.
Such features have made the unique, beautiful environments of the island.
This features of Jeju island made me to focus on the "wind".

We can’t see or touch the wind, but we can “feel the wind” in many ways.
To control the wind we can use the surface.
The connection between wind and structure is made by surface.
By controling the surface, we can control the wind.

To use the wind I combined "Tensegrity" and "Membrane" Structure.
Combination of tensegrity and membrane can make broad but light weight surface.
Which also minimizing the material consumption.
