•Responsive architecture •Dynamic sculptures that respond to varying wind conditions •Symbolic of the social growth within Wyndham •Marriage between natural and manmade elements.


The Aim •Experience for motorists that conveys the rapidly changing populous. •Using dramatic yet consistent changes in color, shape and volumes of space. •Create a constantly changing experience for it’s consumers..


Articulated Cloud - Ned Kahn


The design intent of the “Articulated cloud” was to suggest that the building has been enveloped by a digitized cloud. The sculpture’s appearance changes dramatically with variations in light conditions, weather and time of the day. Its prime driving factor is wind. Ned Kahn used the invisible force to create ‘moving’ facades through the use of smaller dynamic units in a repetitive nature.

Direction Of Prevailing Winds


Wyndham City Gateway Kaiying Yu, Dai Duong, Cheng Chen & Hamish Bartlett Responsive architecture can generate dynamic sculptures that respond to varying wind conditions (The rapid change that can be seen in such a sculpture is symbolic of the social growth within Wyndham itself). The movement of components due wind, combined with an organic structural form, creates the illusion of marriage between natural and manmade elements. The aim is to bring them together to create an experience for motorists that conveys the rapidly changing populous that is Wyndham through the use of dramatic yet consistent changes in color, shape and volumes of space. The ever-changing forms that the structure can take will create a constantly changing experience for it’s consumers. This will allow greater appreciation for the project as an art piece in its lifetime.
