“Wind Pecker” by Goetz Schrader

Wind Pecker” is a project by german designer Goetz Schrader that envisions the concept of inhabiting wind turbine parks. The design arose out of an increased awareness to the appearance of large wind turbine structures on both the sea and land. Wanting to transform the large energy sources into something more than just functional machines, they are rendered as habitable dwellings.

The buildings are formed from highly insulated capsules that are wrapped around the gigantic trunks of the wind turbines – residents are able to access their apartments through a hollow vertical tube that leads them up the shaft of the turbine.

In Wind Pecker project, apartment pods are built around structures like hives or honeycomb. On land or at sea, these structures are our future.
