Wind’s Symphony

“Wind’s Symphony” is designed to be a living, breathing space that harmonizes technology, art, and nature, offering a unique experience that changes with the wind. Its goal is to inspire, educate, and provide a space for contemplation and community interaction.

Aerodynamics and Resonance

The installation is designed to capture and respond to wind currents. The shapes and materials are chosen for their aerodynamic properties which determine how they move or vibrate in through the pipes. When the wind flows over and around these pipes it can cause them to resonate, much like blowing across the top of a pipes to produce a sound.

Aerophone Principles

The design incorporates the principles of an aerophone, where the wind acts as the musician playing the installation. The varying lengths and thicknesses of the rods are similar to the pipes of an organ.


In fact, an object’s natural frequency, in general, depends on its size: The bigger it is, the more slowly it tends to vibrate.

The length of the pipe affects the pitch of the sound. Longer pipes produce lower pitches because they have longer wavelengths.

The length also influences the harmonic series that the pipe can support. In a longer pipe, the spacing between harmonics is narrower.

The radius of the pipe affects the quality of the sound. A larger radius allows for more air to vibrate inside the pipe, which can produce a richer and fuller sound with more harmonic content.

Site Diagram & Analysis

The selected place is where the wind gathers in one place without blowing in many directions, as in other locations in this park. This location is most suitable because the wind must be strong without being random to express the concept of playing an instrument.

Wind Direction & Wind Speed:

Summer – Comes from Southwest
Winter – Comes from Northwest

Average Wind Speed – 9~10 mph

Intended Users

  • Art and Nature Enthusiasts
  • Educators and Students
  • Design and Architecture Enthusiasts

Activities and Use

  • Interactive Learning (Interactive Zone)
  1. Tapping
  2. Rotating the rods
  • Relaxation and Contemplation (Private Zone)
    The rods are densely arranged to create a more private space.
  • Social Interaction (Public Zone)

The installation encourages people to interact with the force of nature by tapping the rods and changing the direction of the pipes.


Galvanized Steel has excellent resonant properties, harmonic variety, durability and sound projection meaning it can vibrate and produce clear, ringing tones when struck or when wind passes through.
