The Solar Wind concept hopes to modernize an old Italian viaduct. Sometimes, it's more trouble to get rid of something rather than to keep it, which is the case for this bridge. Instead of forking over $55 million to destroy it, the city has called for ways to upgrade it, so to speak.

Italian designers Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino have rallied with their Solar Wind concept. It essentially covers the bridge with dozens of turbines, therefore updating its looks as well as its eco-friendly status.
