Nice building. Too bad it is too much hidden behind other buildings. How far is it from the West Tower?

That there's not really any point (in terms of pollution) to make buildings energy efficient
but dont get me wrong, I really like this building.

You clearly have no idea wth ur talking about.
it was mentioned 3 posts ago that this building is not 'hidden', or would you want some kind of 'Taipei 101' effect?

Blijf aub gewoon lekker bij Het strijkijzer of bij de kroon ofzo.

You think that the creation of all these "energy efficient technologies" don't cost any energy at all?
If this building were just a box it would be much more efficient(in terms of energy and finance) even in the long run.

IDK where I read but there was a quote: "green energy doesn't decrease pollution, it only relocates it".

You give me no explanation nor arguments, so what a useless statement that is.

Well, for some of the "green" products what SilentStrike says is absolutely true. For example Toyata' s Prius is advertised as "green" solely based on its millage which is around 50mph. That sound really nice right? However it has that "cute" nickel batteries. Guess what nickel mining does to environment.... Moreover these cars are much more complex. Just to make things easier to explain, they have two engines instead of one. So, they are heavier than a comparable cars and more resources should be used in order to built one. End result, more damage to environment. If you really want to be environmental friendly buy a diesel car. Same millage is easily achievable. This might be true for these environmental friendly buildings too. Since they are more complex at the end they might hurt the environment. But who will do the research???

You gave no explanation or argument for your own statement in the first place. Please enlighten us on how adding wind turbines to a building causes massive pollution.

im sure green buildings are efficient on the long term. it takes more ressources to build (maybe), but after a certain time they save energy. they need less energy that would be produced in coal powerplants... and this building even producess energy. but i think the wind turbines are more like a gimmick than a serious energy producer.

and yes, youre right, building boxes would be more efficient, but common, thats no solution ;-)

Indeed, that's why I do like this building, boxes are too boring. However I'm saying we shouldn't overhype the "green energy".

Good we have come to an agreement

I guess the produced energy will be completely used to lit up the building at night. That shouldn't be a problem anyway. Go for it, a building with this design deserves to be lit up.

Hm, is it going to have noise pollution for those office quarters located near two big turbines? I suppose no one want to rent their offices near those locations.

And there is still a lot of protective foil on a lot of panels which means it will be even better! This will be one of my favorites around the world.
