Michael Jantzen's Wind Shaped Pavillion

Maybe it's because I've recently developed an interest in the architectural possibilities of Second Life, but I've been taking increased notice of buildings that seem iprobable if not downright impossible.

For instance, check out Michael Jantzen's proposed Wind Shaped Pavillion. It's a six-story tall ampitheater with a stretched fabric outer shell. Each floor acts as a giant wind vane, causing the floor to rotate independently as the breeze changes.

This structure seems eminently doable, I look foward to it being built.
