Wind Shaped Architecture

Imagine a building where occupants are able to choose their view. Let's narrow our imaginations down to a building of 6 floors where each floor is rotatable. Imagine it by the seaside where each occupant in each floor is given the choice to rotate their side of the view.

Well, here's the proposal of an internationally known designer, Michael Jantzen. The Wind Shaped Pavilion. His current project is made up of large fabric and it's section position is randomly rotated by the wind. It's not only cool in design but it is also useful. It's rotation generates electricity for illumination during the night. Cool! I've taken a few samples from the original website

Here's all 6 units in symmetrical order.
