In business, sometimes face to face meeting are still necessary.

It's interesting that this article needs to be written since face to face meetings have always been the most productive way to conduct business and to get to know someone quickly. But with all the social media hoopla, it's a good reminder.

Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines

Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines | Business to Business | Scoop.it

Beijing-based Decode Urbanism Office has designed a 1,150 foot (350m) skyscraper located in Taichung City, Taiwan, to house the city’s Department of Urban Development, commercial concerns, museums, retail areas and exhibitions spaces. 


The building’s design was inspired by the plum blossom, the national flower of China and Taiwan. The building’s twisting and turning structure is intended to evoke the experience of plum blossoms bursting into bloom.

To do so, the facade has thousands of small diamond shaped wind turbines, which produce enough energy to power the building. These wind generators are set into the facade grid, oscillating as wind skirts the building.

new and innovative way to produce power for an entire building. The source of energy is embedded in the architecture. - Madi Chaput

JMS1kiddz's curator insight, October 16, 2013 4:17 AM

Yet again another environmentally friendly design. This building has been designed to generate its own energy and power LED lighting throughout the building. This is done through the power of wind turbines which the building is completely surrounded by. It is becoming the newest trend in design to create buildings and structures that are helpful to the environment.

A Taiwan university research team has been awarded a patent on energy efficient nano-carbon light bulbs. Unlike popular CFL bulbs and LED lights, the new nano-carbon light bulbs and tubes use a mercury-free manufacturing process and can be easily integrated into existing light bulb production facilities.
