|From wind rose and wind-spectrum information we are able to align this future building with the free natural energy gradients of sun and wind.|
|The roof has 20 Aeurotecture wind turbines which are augmented with an upper roof, thereby accelerating the wind further.|
|3 vertical columns of 12 Aerotecture wind turbines (36 total) will be mounted facing the prevailing wind.|
|The south-southwestern side will be covered with Unisolar PV panels in the balconies.|
|Solar evacuated tubes for hot water and heat-pumps for air conditioning are on the very top of the structure.|
