An environmentally conscious design process that dares to engage the occupant in a sensorial way. Utilizing the power of wind not only as a tool to harvest energy and passively cool the housing complexes, but also as a means to alter the occupant's perspective of wind through the sculpting of the site along a series of wrapping pathways.
In collaboration with Michael Powell.
Abstract Site Plan: Using the forces of movement through the area and wind directions to form paths and nodes.
Wind Roses (Pittsburgh, PA) used to look at the origin directions of wind at various times of the year.
