Today’s tall, dense cities create extreme and unpredictable wind conditions, which limit the productive use of urban wind for localized power generation. Thomas Meeker’s project examines how we might modify the shape of future cities to provide more predictable seasonable breezes, the ability to scour out polluted urban air, and ways of harnessing these winds to power smaller distributed urban wind turbines. From Chicago, “the windy city,” comes a proposal to use that wind more productively while reducing dependence on oil and gas deliveries.
