Highway Wind 3

Highway Wind 2

A runner-up for Metropolis magazine’s 2006 Next Generation Award, Mark Oberholzer with Wittenberg Oberholzer Architects, Laura Koehler, and Michael Morrow, designed these Highway Divider Wind Turbines. These ninjas designed small conical wind turbines that would sit on the concrete dividers along highways, which would be spun by the air movement created by passing traffic. The electricity generated would be fed into a cable running beneath the dividers, and then into the city grid. Check out the rest of the comp HERE.

Wondering why there are no images at Metropolis’ page? That’s because in true ninja fashion this post has the only images on the net [as of now]. Act like you know.
