I have never been one for working in an office building, but that preference might change, thanks to the Adamant Building. This building was designed by Luis Alfonso Durazo Ballesteros as a self-sustaining skyscraper for 2050.

The Adamant Building uses natural light to illuminate the lower floors, as well as an innovative elevator and escalator system to produce power. The building comes with the requisite wind turbines and solar panels, making it one of the greenest buildings on the block. Stats for See-Through Skyscrapers Trending: Older & Chilly
