algorithmic modeling for Rhino

by Siwen XUE Rhinoscript & Grasshopper.
To face the problem of energy crisis in the future, the design tries to find a way of energy self-supply for skyscrapers. Using the height superior of skyscraper, the design creates a green energy system which is a set of vertical wind mill. To fit the monsoon climate in Shanghai, the design ensures that each azimuth of the tower can absorb the energy of wind so that the electricity supply was continuously. The shape of the tower and the inside space can reflect the distribution rule of wind energy source. Using the wind-rose map and wind pressure-height curve to generate the shape.
