During 2012, while Rem Koolhaas’s vertical city was being completed at the waterfront of the Maaas river, i have realized the documentation of one of the most surprising designs i have ever seen in public space. Designed by Superuse the ReWind at Willemsplein is to me an important statement such as: “think big act small”.
While wind power has developed rapidly over the past years the economic life cycle of a significant number of first-generation wind turbines is coming to an end. Latest research shows that, by 2050, we will face around 43 million tonnes of wind turbine blade material waste worldwide.
In spring 2020 Re-Wind has been removed to be RePainted by Mr. June, a notorious street artist from Rotterdam. This portfolio is an ongoing documentation of the process. Stay tuned..
