Windscape- a design competition
We have discussed the beauty of wind farms at length, and how the scions of Cape Cod and Nantucket do not want wind farms in their backyard, thank you. Now the Boston Society of Architects is running a competion to determine:
-Can a wind farm be more than just a utility to generate electricity?
-Could a grid of off-shore wind turbines be a park, a sculpture garden, a sailing and water sports venue, a tourist destination, a center for scientific research?
-Can a wind park be a place to educate the community about the impact of wind energy on the environment?
-How do we address the proposed addition of wind farms to our physical and cultural landscape?
