The idea of a chapel associated with the Setra Marina Hotel, Biwako. It is assumed a space filled with strong natural wind blowing from Lake Biwa. Therefore, we seek to make the project as an instrument played by the natural wind, a stringed instrument like the one present in Greek mythology, used by the god of the wind Aeolus. This is an interpretation of the Aeolian harp as a space that plays sound when the wind passes through or produce a wind speed of how the internal space, while repeating the analysis by simulation and model, began to inspect the details of the opening and architectural forms. To create a continuous curved Frame Structure made by domestic larch LVL, we put the structural plywood to frame the outside, thereby play a horizontal force. Plan as an upper airway of the internal space, I put in a 91mm pitch of 0.72mm SUS wire there. Then Karman vortex is generated around the string by the air flow, the strings began to resonance from the force applied to them, then the sound is born, resonating in the on the wooden enclosure walls. It is the thickness of 2.5mm thought plywood inner try as thin as possible to increase the vibration. Further, the instrument can be used to control the force of the wind by changing the degree of opening and closing an opening portion provided on the east and west, and change the tone.
Dent enter into this instrument, shed the ear people. It is a calm space that echo’s the sound of the waves of Lake Biwa at all times, as the wind strength in the space begins to grow, higher sound can be heard, the tone will change depending on the direction and speed of the wind. When the changes occur to the wind accompanied by the energy of the friction force of the earth's surface and attraction of the Earth and relations of a non-homogeneous solar energy of the surrounding mountains and Lake Biwa appear as sound, by interposing this architecture, people so far This is because you can imagine a variety of natural forces that could not be imperceptible.
