The Wind Shade Roof

Personally, I find combination of clean energy and art to be compelling.  Michael Jantzen‘s designs certainly embody both ideas. Pictured above is his “Wind Shade Roof” concept – it’s a swimming pool complex with wind turbines integrated into the roof. The turbines provide power for night lighting, pool heating and pumps.

I’m sure the design is not entirely optimal, but also I’m would be amazing to stand inside this structure. See more photos on his web site. He has a number of similar clean energy projects in his portfolio.
