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.
