Aeolus Acoustic Wind Pavilion

The Aeolus Acoustic Wind Pavilion created by Bristol-based artist Luke Jerram was on display this summer outside Lyme Hall in Lyme Park, Disley before being moved to the Eden Project in Cornwall and later to MediaCityUK in Salford Quays.

Visit the website of Luke Jerram for more information on the Aeolus Acoustic Wind Pavilion or visit the the 'Making of Aeolus' exhibition at the Royal West of England Academy (RWA), Bristol until October 10.

Aeolus (named after the Greek God of the Four Winds) was inspired by the artist's earlier research in Isfahan in Iran, and built with the aid of scientists from the University of Salford. The stainless steel pipes resonate and produce sounds according to the strength and direction of the wind.

Other places of interest in and around the Stockport area in Greater Manchester include Stockport Market, Stockport Town Hall, St Mary's Church, Bramhall Hall, the Air Raid Shelters, Woodbank Park, Vernon Park, the Viaduct and Stockport Hat Museum.
