London sky-scraper integrates turbines

Lately London has become the city to watch when it comes to contemporary architecture, and this 42-story tower is no exception.  Three huge turbines are embedded into the concave facade of it's uppermost section, and are projected to provide 8% of the power the building needs. . . a small percentage compared to some, and far from a carbon-neutral building -- this is at the very least what every tall building should incorporate.  If you've ever opened a window above the 30th floor of any building, you'll know that there's plenty of potential for energy whipping around up there!  Full gallery from Inhabitat HERE.
