I guess it depends on storm frequency. If it blows away six or eight times a year, who could afford all that labor and materials? Especially if ... as seems to be the case ... the necessary fabric is a petrochemical synthetic?
It's very possible my view on this is colored by living in a place that's called Tornado Alley, where any structure not made of concrete or brick is considered temporary.
I guess in an area subject to high winds something like this could be better, and probably cheaper and less labour intensive. Plus it could be taken down if bad weather is expected, a bit like a ship's sail.
This is very interesting, I've had a thought bouncing around in my head for awhile for something like this, but with an attachment to accelerate the air flow to try to take advantage of a rapid cool effect just before it passes through the tortuose path collector.
