De Maasvlakte is the ultimate spot for wind-tourism: surfing, kiting, beach sailing, hang gliding or just strolling. The future array of 150-meter-high windmills will only strengthen this image. The future radar post with its 70-meter height is the only exception in this wind oriented area. In order to make it part of the wall of wind.

The traditional radar mast will be wrapped with a circular wall of propellers. The propellers divert the wind and turn it into an experience. The construction consists of two interconnected cylinders, a public winding ramp and a staircase and elevator for the radar operator. The outer cylinder skin is made of 749 propellers which will generate energy, no matter the wind direction or wind speed. They turn the Windpost into a marine attraction and give visitors the ultimate wind-experience.
