KamerMaker-Wind Turbines-Prototype 1 by kamermaker Jul 16, 2012

Description

This project is for the KamerMaker, a mobile full scale 3d printing machine, that we are currently building in Amsterdam, Netherlands (http://www.kamermaker.com).

The facade of the KamerMaker will be perforated and we will be insterting these wind turbines into the perforations. These designs are still preliminary so there are a few bugs we need to work out but we welcome your recommendations and tips.

A shame they never replied. I would suggest using vertical axis wind turbines.
Hiw will the wind flow through the turbines when there is a solid wall behind them? Or is the wind supposed to blow parallel to the blades?
