The idea behind HWKNs Wendy was to try and experiment with how far the boundary of architecture can expand to create ecological and social effect. Wendy itself is maid from a scaffolding (70x70x45) system that supports the stretched nylon material that is treated with a titania nanopartical spray

The form of Wendy are arms that extend with sub-programmatic elements such as mist, water cannon, and playing music to social interaction between that visitors

The nylon material can clean the air equivalent to removing 260 cars from the roads in the year 2012!
