Through a computer dynamic engine in real time, overall shape with 300 different triangles are manipulated to find the optimized form for site condition, structure and cost as well as intuitive design of wind itself. Wind blowing canopy occupies the site and leads visitors’ route in bending form. It moves up and down, touching ground and sticking out over the wall.

Perforated pattern on the surface emphasizes the flow and wrinkle on the metal fabric and creates the shade under to rest and play with. Making visual contrast to raw concrete wall, white metal fabric attracts visitors and provides surreal atmosphere with spatial quality.
