Ian McChesney has completed his first wind shelter in Blackpool, a design that won a competition in 2002.
The London-based architect is working on a series of the swivelling shelters for the Lancashire seaside town.
McChesney's concept was, he said, born out of a distillation of the key elements required in the brief.
They were a 'vane', which will turn the structure and a 'baffle' that will shelter the inhabitant from the wind.
The second of these shelters is in manufacture and will be installed on the waterfront imminently. by Ed Dorrell
