Located on the crest of a dramatic seaside hilltop in White Rock, Canada, this site experiences significant winds throughout the year. WIND-SHAPED TOWER minimizes effects on wind patterns through architectural form. The bent, slab-block massing undulates to respond to seasonal wind distribution, featuring a prow-like stern that faces into the frequent southwestern wind. This acute windward angle aids in the reduction of wind downwash and acceleration. A protected cove in the building’s inner-boomerang provides a residential courtyard garden sheltered from prevailing sea winds.
