Turbine City concept – Gallery

Energy & Efficiency, Energy systems, Features, Gallery, Science, Tech Digest news

It gets pretty windy in Norway apparently. Well, windy enough for On Office’s idea for a city built within wind turbines not to sound completely ludicrous anyway.

The concept here is that with turbines growing in size to accommodate our considerable energy needs, then their interiors could likely accommodate us too. A home away from home perhaps for offshore workers, or those who just cant tread lightly enough with their carbon footprints.

Imagine living in a home that was constantly powering itself? Put a few Ferris-wheel like cars on the end of those blades and you’ve practically got a self-powered theme park too! Result!
