WIND SOCK    Fall 2014 | Construction 5 | Professor Judy Birdsong | With Cameron Benson   Wind Sock is a proposed installation in Sutton Hall at The University of Texas School of Architecture. The project aims to make students aware of the buildings unused (nailed shut) natural ventilation system by running a fabric structure through the building. The fabric gives air substance, alerting passerby of the presence of the buildings old systems and allows students to manipulate the form as though it were a column of air.  The installation connects to the existing window frames using a series of shims to generate tension. It touches the frames lightly, preventing damage of the buildings historic fabric.
