Building wind shelter / Public facility

Building wind shelter

Acceleration of wind around the side of the high rise buildings became problematic factor in the city. We tried to solve environmental and social problems by presenting public facility using this factor.
The energy produced by rotating turbine provides electrical energy and it serves as a media billboard. 'Building wind shelter' only provides limited advertisement for Eco-friendly product and social enterprises. Profits are donated to non-profit organizations. 'Building wind shelter’ creates shared value and is established in the city as a sustainable landmark. ‘Building wind shelter’ also serve as open communication space.
