Windsock

Client: Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU)
Location: Manchester

In collaboration with the landscape artist in residence at MMU, Ian Fisher, this meteorological data collection station consists of an array of 10m high posts supporting windsocks and anemometers of varying forms. The installation is to collate and distribute data to a global network.

Located on campus at MMU’s Birley Fields, the tall, slender masts required an extensive dynamic assessment to optimise the slenderness of the section to support 4m long, 1m diameter windsocks.
