Building Outside Of The Box...with Wind!

This is pretty cool if you ask me.  The picture you are looking at is the Bahrain World Trade Center in....Bahrain. It's the first modern building to incorporate wind mills in the structure of the building. The turbines, which will operate 50% of the time, will generate approximately 15% of the buildings energy.  While this is only a small percentage of the energy the building will use, I like the fact that it was designed with a sense of sustainability in mind and still looks pretty cool.  Now replace those windows with solar panels and this thing could cook!  Check out the video here.
