A Slipstream, in essence, is a type of turbulence generated by a body moving rapidly within a larger body. As stated by Lebbeus Woods, &ldquo;The slipstream is a highly dynamic space active with forces that impel a direction and that itself moves, together with the moving body continuously creating it...&rdquo; This became the design intention: to express such a phenomenon experientially, to explore the implications of slipstreaming as a spatial construct.</p> Captain Concept - Archinect Interviews Michael Jantzen katyatylevich 2009-09-04T14:50:00-04:00 >2014-07-11T17:46:35-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="393" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> The artist and designer Michael Jantzen has added another structure to the surreal panorama made of his alternative-energy social and living spaces. This latest addition &mdash;Sun Rays Pavilion &mdash; is an oblique gathering area made of 12 precast concrete columns towering 150 feet tall. The Pavilion&rsquo;s flat roof, as it were, faces south. Glazed with photovoltaic film, the structure generates its own electricity, with some to spare &mdash; providing the local power grid with surplus energy. Large glass sections and doors keep the space ventilated.</p> <p> As it is with such projects, there are no production plans. Not yet, anyway. Nevertheless, in the fantastical landscape where many of Jantzen&rsquo;s concepts reside, Sun Rays Pavilion serves its purpose: it is a gathering space, after all, visited in no small part by bloggers and magazine readers; it further broaches exactly those questions and concerns Jantzen hoped it would. Besides, as Jantzen tells me, the fate of a realized structure may be even harde...</p>
