Wind Powered Skyscraper by SOM

American design firm, Skidmore, Owings & Merill have unveiled plans for a 530 meter skyscraper in Indonesia that will harvest wind energy at its peak. We can called it a wind powered skyscraper. 

The Pertamina Energy Tower is being built for the state-owned oil and gas company, Pertamina, and will host 20,000 of its employees in Jakarta!

It will feature a wind tunnel at its peak that will harbour the power of the prevailing wind to help supply power to the building – ironic considering this is an oil and gas HQ?
