The Wind Gust Pavilion is a place for the public and primary school children to learn about renewable energy by teaching them about wind energy harvesting in particular. The outer shell of the pavilion was created through the wind pattern on site and experiments on how to accelerate wind turbulences. To serve as an example, the pavilion itself uses renewable energy. All exterior walls have piezoelectric cube panels attached to them and to create even more surface area, additional walls have been added parallel to the exterior facade. These walls do not only help to harvest more wind energy but also create narrow paths around the building that serve as a playground for children. Besides housing a laboratory, a classroom and a registry for school groups, the learning facility also includes two public spaces. All things considered, this hub will help people to understand how renewable energy can help us to create a better future.
