Power to the wind
'Windstation: An iconic cooling tower that celebrates wind power' was part of the international art and design competition Winterstations with the theme: RIOT! The exhibition took place from februari till april 2018 at the Beaches of Toronto, Canada.
Wind Station is a serious, but fun and friendly protest. The interactive pavilion has the iconic shape of a nuclear cooling tower. However, it is made of hundreds of toy pin wheels, refering to renewable energy. The pin wheels spin around in the wind, create a swishing sound and provide joy.
Visitors can enter the pavilion through a small opening along the waterside. There they can climb the safety guard chair and experience the full moving shape from the interior.
