'The Piraeus Tower' by HWKN Architects is an interesting way to modernize a building that hasn't been completed for 30 years. This 'Windscraper Tower' design is one which incorporates eco-friendly features as well as a unique overall look.
Featuring "leaf" panels which create wind on the building's exterior, HWKN Architects hope to use this piece to generate usable power through the generated wind. While producing sounds which will create a soothing environment, the tower's leaves will also make the area a more calming place to live.
