This is a conceptual study for the construction of large roofs that are clad with wind turbines. The wind turbines shade the space below and at the same time as they rotate; they generate electricity to power whatever is under the roof and or anything around it.

This particular roof is shown covering a large swimming pool in a desert environment. It would provide power for night lighting, pool maintenance, water pumping, etc. In general it represents another in a series of my projects over the years that have attempted to create structures which (as a result of their unique design) generate their own energy directly from the environment in which they are built.
