An acoustic wind pavilion was created by Luke Jerram. It is located in Canary Wharf,
London. It uses engineering, acoustics and aerodynamics. The sound depends on what
the wind is like that day. Luke got the idea when he was talking with desert diggers in Iran.
What they do is dig into the ground and when they find water, they dig a tunnel that will transfer
the water into the city. They said that sometimes the wind can make the tunnels make
noises. The music works because of the Karman Vortex Street effect. When the wind
hits the tube it creates a vibration. The sound depends on the strength and speed of
the wind and the size of the tube. This structure is made of 310 tubes. Luke invented a
pavilion that is art for your ears and your eyes.
