Airflow-Flaunting Facades
The Charles Sowers Windswept Installation Moves with the Wind

Interacting with its environment, the Charles Sowers Windswept installation demonstrates the movement of the wind.

As something we often ignore because we can’t see it, the wind ebbs and flows through this installation piece, making it appear as though it is contorting on its own. The project uses 612 aluminum weather vanes that rotate and point in the direction the wind is blowing. It gives us a visual of how dynamic the air flow really is, constantly changing in multiple directions, causing the weather vanes to have a rippling effect at some moments and a swirling effect at others.

The movement of the Charles Sowers Windswept installation demonstrates how the wind interacts with the surface of a building, a phenomena we wouldn’t normally notice otherwise.
