Captivating. Hypnotic. Distracting. Mesmerizing.

No matter how one feels about windmills, we can certainly agree that they are moving. Spinning and rotating with the speed and direction of the wind, the motion is a reminder of our energy consumption and our connection with the environment.

For this reason, visualizing windmills with just a still image is not very compelling.  To better communicate their look and feel, we suggest creating an animation.

To illustrate, we dreamed up a development along the ridge of Portland’s West Hills.  This urban installation would generate power at the place of consumption – the city of Portland – with an array of twenty Vestas V60 turbines, producing up to 17MW of renewable power.  (Not quite Copenhagen’s Middelgrunden, but an exciting proposition nonetheless!)
