As site we chose Ibiza in the south of Spain, which suggests us a typical warm climate. We decided to work with wind as main energy, to be more exact about our analysis. We have used a strategy of twisted lines to have more control over the wind in terms of direction and power. The geometrical situation of two different lines leads the wind through outside and inside. It’s a two sided relationship between geometry and wind. Wind defines geometry as well as geometry defines how the air flows through the building. So actually the wind tells us how the building looks like. The different angles of the twists on the surface makes a transition from ceiling to wall and from wall to floor - this we have applied back to the ventilation system on the inside of the building. By changing the interval we can change the effect on the surface in terms of wind properties and perception.
