e realised that wind energy is a powerful energy source which not only able to produce energy, but also can create a visually-attractive outcome through the wind-induced movement. Hence, we decided to enhance this dynamic quality in our sculpture. From the site plan view, we locate the sculpture at the edge of the land, to ensure people from far opposite land would notice this amazing sculpture. Besides, in consideration of the future water taxi terminal, our sculpture sits at a distance which convenient to the users from the terminal, as well as playing as ‘welcoming role’ to the users. Spatial experience has been presented with the dynamic form of sculpture. From the low ceiling height at entrance to the extremely high level at the lookout point, the users could experience the transitional change in term of the height, the space as well as the flapping intensity of the panels. This is because the panels at higher point could deflect more due to stronger wind impact. In term of energy optimisation, we put the flapping panels at such a certain angles to ensure its deflection would at the greatest according to the wind direction analysis provided in data. Not only that, we also add in the human generating system-the piezoelectric flooring panels along the sculpture walkway. Hence, every step by users would automatically contribute to the green energy generation.
