Windcatcher(badgir)

A windtower (wind catcher) (Persian: بادگیر‎‎ bâdgir: bâd “wind” + gir “catcher” is a traditional Persian architectural element to create natural ventilation in buildings.[1] Windcatchers come in various designs: uni-directional, bi-directional, and multi-directional. Windcatchers remain present in many countries and can be found in traditional Persian-influenced architecture throughout the Middle East, including in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf (mostly Bahrain and Dubai[2]), Pakistan, and Afghanistan
