The Wind Shaped Pavillion of Michael Jantzen









The Wind Shaped Pavilion is a project of Michael Jantzen. The building consists of six segments that move randomly under the pressure of the wind and so generating electricity for the night hours. The idea of a moving building is ever so interesting as now, when technology gives options for technical optimization combined with art and elegancy. The segments are made of lightweight fabric structure that moves around a central open support frame.

The shape of the structure starts out as a relatively symmetrical form. Then the wind begins to alter that shape randomly, with only a slim chance of ever returning to its original symmetry. The segments could be also altered by the occupants for solving different needs such as nicer views or weather conditions and other.

The Wind Shaped Pavilion is a design proposal for a large fabric structure that can be used as a public or private pavilion. It could become an apartment complex or some other commercial building.

Michael Jantzen is an internationally known designer and artist whose work has been published in hundreds of magazines, books, and newspapers from around the world. His work has also been featured on various TV and radio programs. Some of the publications that have featured Michael's work include, Architecture magazine, Architectural Digest, Architectural Record, House&Garden, House Beautiful, Wired, Newsweek, Domus, lARCA, Popular Science, World of Interiors, Blueprint, City, the New York Times, the LA Times, Architecture Now Volumes 2 & 3, Brave New Houses, Architecture in the 20th Century and many more.
