Wind Rose

FUTURE SIMPLE STUDIO

Future Simple Studio is an architecture and design office, crafting intuitive experiences guided by a disciplined exercise of simplicity. They created the Downsview Wind Rose: a radial network of 32 square arches arranged in a compass-like formation. A wind rose is a time-honoured tool invented by meteorologists that maps the direction, speed, and frequency of the wind in a specific location. The square arches provided potential for installations and have hosted seven since the structure was installed in fall 2021. The installations have celebrated the wind, local history, stories of making home, and the Indigenous connections to this place.
