Wind Tunnel Footbridge


From the man who brought you the Wind Shaped Pavilion and the Transformation House, comes the Wind Tunnel Footbridge. It's a design proposal by Michael Jantzen for a new kind of wind activated footbridge made of steel and aluminum. As the wind blows, the five wind turbine wheels turn at different speeds around the people who are walking through to reach the other side. Three of the five wheels turn in one direction while the other two turn in the opposite direction. As the wind driven wheels turn in different directions and at different speeds, they can produce different electronic corresponding sounds. The Wind tunnel Footbridge was designed to be constructed in various types of public venues as an architectural attraction. The wheels also produce and store electrical energy much like a windmill. :: Wind Tunnel Footbridge
