Marks Barfield takes on turbines

  • Comment
Marks Barfield is drawing up plans for an extraordinary 40m-tall urban wind turbine with trendy young engineering firm XCO2.

The practice behind the London Eye is currently in negotiations with a number of landowners over a potential site for the extraordinary structure.

The building will take the form of a giant upper-case 'Y', with five large turbines strung across the two struts.

The scheme is specifically designed for cities, being a strategy that features low sound production and a very small footprint.

In addition, the project will be engineered to take advantage of the turbulent and changing wind directions in cities, an attribute that is not found in rural turbines.
