Until I started perusing the Internet for the unique innovations, a building was just a building—yet architecture such as the proposed Al-Birr Foundation Headquarters proves me wrong, and happily so.

Designed by Perkins+Will, the Al-Birr Foundation Headquarters won the “Architectural Review / MIPIM Future Projects Award” in the ‘tall buildings’ category. A sustainable urban tower, it draws important elements from the city it will call home: Riyadh, KSA.
