Indonesia Plans To Build A 99 Stories Skyscraper Integrated With Wind Turbines

Indonesian energy company Pertamina plans to build a new headquarters in Jakarta, with 99 stories high. The building will be green and self-sustainable.

The building will integrate a wind turbines at the top of its roof. A funnel captures wind, sucks it inside, and speeds it up to run a series of vertical wind turbines. Pertamina is working with architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) to design the building. SOM's design of sun-shading “leaves” on 2 sides of the building helps to cut glare and shade the sunlight while still keeping the inside of the building bright enough. The building also uses water-based radiant cooling systems, instead of conventional air conditioners to reduce power consumption.
