The project is based on 3 main interests: -Sound mitigation from wind farms -Recycling wind turbine blades -Community well-being The building being designed is on the shore of the North Sea. It is based in Wick which is a town in the north of Scotland bordering the Moray Firth and straddling the River Wick. Its purpose is to find a system to re-use wind turbines blades to close their life cycle, as they otherwise end up in landfill. The structure will also be a way to mitigate sound emitted from wind turbines nearby (as new onshore wind farm is being proposed). The sound barrier design will be recommended to be mimicked in other localities where new wind farm proposals will be made. This is in anticipation of the wind farming industry continuing to expand to meet clean energy demands and ultimately a net zero carbon future. It creates a new system through architecture of sound reduction. The sound spa and well-being center is a compensation or reward to the community for its support of clean energy and contributing to a zero carbon future, it acts as an incentive for future localities to welcome wind farms into their towns.
