Swivelling Wind Shelter by Ian McChesney with Atelier One

One of two remaining of three 8m high, stainless steel shelters that turn like weather vanes, keeping their occupants away from the prevailing wind. Designed by architect Ian McChesney, in collaboration with engineers Atelier One, the graceful sculptural form of the shelters, shaped like whales' flukes, is structured like an aircraft wing, vibrating in strong gusts of wind.

Installed as part of the Great Promenade Show.
The Great Promenade Show :: SD3032
A complete reconstruction of Blackpool's South Promenade incorporated a major series of new public art works commissioned by Blackpool Borough Council, and described by them as "an outdoor gallery of contemporary art". Since 2001, ten large-scale permanent works have been installed at special viewing points along the well-designed new 2km walkway. Additional information can be found at Archive LinkExternal link
