    Same principle as evaporative cooling.

    This is traditionaly known as a swamp cooler, the evaporation media being made of terracota

    Use the wind not only to go through the tubes but to lift the water that cycles over the tubes, completely wind powered AC

    Put this terra cotta AC instead of fountain and waterfall

    Circulating the same water without treatment will likely lead to legionnaires disease

    It's just a swamp cooler but made of clay.

    The only challenge here is reliance on the water source. To circulate the water you need electricity. If there is a way to avoid that (or reduce) this could become commercially viable.

    Terracotta rooftiles have been used to cool buildings in hot countries for thousands of years (where water is available)
