Wall of Wind takes National Stage in Disaster Mitigation

Florida International University’s one-of-a-kind hurricane simulator, the Wall of Wind, takes the national stage as a special, interactive feature of the new exhibition opening at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.  The 18 month exhibition, Designing for Disasters, explores new solutions and historical responses to a range of natural hazards, including earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, storm surge, flooding, seal level rise, tsunamis, and wildfires. The Wall of Wind (WOW) exhibit spotlights FIU’s role as a national leader in hurricane mitigation research.
