Urban wind tower

A landmark which modifies its proportions depending on the viewpoint and the effect of the sunlight; revealing an element in a constant evolution. An engraved tower devoted to the wind. The building combines renewable energy it which feeds the city and its facilities with electricity, without needing other resources. Taking advantage of the possibilities that it suggests, much as for its construction as for its shape.

Its stillness contrasts with the mobility of the shadows, its firmness emphasizes the strength of the wind to which it frames. An emblem which reveals the intense light and the powerful wind to appraise the positive view of a society which has always taken advantage of the surrounding elements.

The plan view is designed by means of three vertical communication cores connected two abreast, trying to solve the commitment between the desire to be part of the landscape and the will to trap the wind. This geometry is repeated in the ways which integrate the structure within its surroundings; the open Podium towards the pedestrian access, where there are the Conference Hall with one hundred people capacity, the Children Library, the Parvis (Atrium) and the services area.
