Spectral Sculptural Windmills
The Whirlers Installation is a System of Self-Sustaining Park Art

The Whirlers concept would surely appeal to the public’s increasing interest in dynamic visual stimuli. What’s especially admirable about this project is, however, the way that the spectacular setup operates.

Like trees lining the edges of a park path, rows of vertical axis Darrieus wind turbines accentuate the landscaped trajectories. They provide a touch of shade from the sun and offer a sensational display of vivid colors. Eduardo Benamor Duarte and Caterina Tiazzoldi dreamed up an application for renewable energy generation that is purely aesthetic.

The Whirlers are their own self-sufficient sources of power, making them a desirable zestful feature of an outdoor public space. Furthermore, the potential is there for the spinning structures to produce enough electricity to share around.
