the ‘ammophila’ designed by murtada alkaabi is a wind farm that can also be used for habitation. the volume consists of demountable panels, making it possible to use the building for different purposes, while a moving façade creates a continuous curtain affect throughout the day. the project is based on combining processes for generating sustainable energy with viable options for living – envisioning a future where the two are seamlessly integrated. the concept differentiates itself from other wind power design as it has the potential to serve as an architectural landmark as well, using the one structure to serve multiple purposes.
