Windshelters

Ian Mcchesney as Architects

These shelters are designed to rotate according to the prevailing wind direction to shield the occupants from the elements. Their shape was born out of a distillation of the key requirements: a vane to turn the structure, and a baffle that will shelter the inhabitant from the wind. The shelters are 8 metres tall and manufactured from resilient ‘Duplex’ stainless steel, they sit on a four metre diameter turntable, which incorporates a damper to control the speed of rotation
