The Sound of Denmark 


By looking to Denmark’s long reliance on wind force for the country’s development over time, designers Laura Mesa Arango and Rafael Sanchez Herrera have conceived their proposal – titled “The Sound of Denmark” – for the 2014 edition of land art generator initiative. Located on copenhagen’s harbor edge, the project is comprised of 12 viking horn forms which function as “compact wind acceleration turbines” to both generate energy and also produce sounds in co-operation with the structure’s shape. The “sound landscape” allows for public occupation, serving as a place for engagement with environmental forces – wind and sound – while potentially prompting reflection on its impact on society in past, current, and possible future realities.
