“during the summer of 2012, wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road. wendy’s boundary is defined by tools like shade, wind, rain, music, and visual identity to reach past the confines of physical limits. wendy crafts an environment, not just a space. spiky arms made of the nylon fabric mentioned above will reach out with micro-programs like blasts of cool air, music, water cannons and mists to create social zones throughout the courtyard.”
