Entry Description

There are many Typhoons bring abundant rainfall and strong winds in summer and fall in Southeast Asia. In order to save those plenty of water and turn the fierce wind into energy, we designed CYCLONE CATCHER as a concept, located on the flat land of the island, providing a solution to transform disasters into energy for Philippines that damaged by the typhoon.
We redesigned the blend scale and add many scaly-shaped open on the blend. Those two functions help avoid the damage caused by the strong wind. The opening open when the wind is too strong, and close to increase the wind resistance.


Now studying in the Department of Architectural Design National Taiwan University of Science and Technology.
