I've been thinking..........

How many possible "things" can get sucked into those wind turbines?
birds...
helium balloons...
sky diver with a parachute...

Guangzhou also experiences 3-5 typhoons each year. Plastics and small wooden objects can easily get whipped up off the ground. The tower is placed perfectly to capture these typhoon winds coming in from the south east, I wonder if these flying debris would cause damage to the turbines.

Maybe they'll place some nets or similar stuff to prevent them.

Nothing will get sucked into there.
The turbines will spin because of the wind.
If something hits the turbines its because the wind blew them there, the turbine doesn't 'suck' or 'blow' on the other side.

So true.
the wind does the work not the other way around.

Yeah, I know it's not the the spinning of the turbines that causes the movement of the wind, but the shape of the building concentrates and channels the wind into an increased speed as it gets pushes its way through the building, so standing in front of it does give a "sucking force" feel.

Hell no, turbines always resist the wind in some degree. The motive force at any given moment is the wind. It will blow with less force through the building than on the building's edges. This is my guess, but maybe we would need some engineer to enlighten us.
