Wind turbines and landscape
Our landscapes are saturated with facilities much needed and useful, but not always aesthetic. We talk about “sustainable development”, “visual impact of wind turbines, towers, antennas … in the nature,” “Landscape Integration and Harmonization,” “renewable energy andlandscape” … How many conventions, conferences, events address this issue, how many architects are studying the problem, how much money spent, how many written words?
And in reality?
In fact we have all over our land the same transmission towers for 50 years, with few exceptions of beautiful creations. With the arrival of the mobile landscape on our right had the antenna-relay operators. And now we’re talking about renewable energy, we set the same highpropeller turbines everywhere.
As an environmental artist, I come to propose a new solution foroverhead allowing us to live in a more pleasant environment and bringart to all covered.
For an innovative aesthetic and environmental impact, I propose a radical solution: instead of a large propeller on a pole, were sculptures that are small wind turbines. This allows you to personalize, humanize the landscape.
Wind turbines, like all air network need to be high to work. My approach is to treat the support of wind turbines. These new sculptures – wind towers are: ladies, birds, flowers, people, animals and abstract forms that will be installed alone or in groups in a natural landscape or an urban or rural.
It will be difficult to locate a wind turbine in the city, in a public space. But why not a sculpture – wind mast, it will be the symbol of human progress. And since it will be in operation, it can bring the energy of an entire neighborhood.
The wind sculptures were inspired by the construction of the pylons module lattice. This is part of an artistic concept that keeps the module as a symbol of our time. This module construction allows the creation of new forms, its production is possible by any metal construction company. After modeling, each sculpture will wind the assurance of a stable mechanism that allows the installation of one or more wind turbines in the horizontal or vertical axis. This solution transforms the visual impact of wind farms, in addition it allows a reduction in pollution from wind turbines on a large propeller.
