The chosen site for this project is Q121 Farnborough, which is the last standing wind tunnel in the UK. Visiting the site I was able to see there was multiple areas of significance within the structured shell that I could explore for ideas within this project.
Q121 is a very interesting site that can be explored through the original materials, light, shadows, geometry, forms and volumes through out the differe
Therefore the area of interest I would like to explore further is the wind tunnel. This is because I’m interest in the movement of the wind flow and how it was mechanically controlled through the tunnel and fan within the test area. Also considering the scale of the tunnel compared to an individual as shown within the image to the right, as it can become very dominant and overwhelming within the space.
