e used the range of the wind speed at different directions as the input parameters for creating a series of points. For the directions that emerge in diagonal angle such as north-west, south-west and etc, the same parameter would be the input for both x and y coordinates of the point. Similar to the approach of case study 2, we create a line that links all the points together, which each of the point becomes the origin for the XZ plane. We built circles on each of the vertical plane which the radii are in random order, which the range is defined by the relationship equation shown. This is because the wind would speed up under pressure formed by small openings. For those in diagonal directions, an additional Rotate 3D component was being used. After that, we lofted all the circles that in a straight line in order to form the tunnel. Later, we moved the tunnels towards their origin. Since we want the wind hits on the tunnel in angle, hence we rotate all the tunnels in 45 degrees from the original directions. Here is the final outcome, which we at last decided
