As part of a new green-oriented project, Caterina Tiazzoldi and Eduardo Benamor Duarte plan on having as many as 10,000 wind turbines installed in the Fresh Kills Park in Staten Island.

Apparently, Whirlers, as this project is named, comes as a result of a design contest known as the Land Art Generator Initiative.

This design competition basically challenges artists and urban architects to bring forth innovative and green-oriented ideas for urban development.

Inhabitat explains that this forest of colorful wind turbines put together by Caterina Tiazzoldi and Eduardo Benamor Duarte would present visitors to the Fresh Kills Park with a dynamic landscape which both pleases the eye, and promotes the use of green energy sources.

This innovative and colorful landscape is best described by the people who came up with the idea, and who refer to it as a “whirling artificial forest.”
