The Taiwan Tower Competition truly is the gift that keeps on giving, with the submission of the 'Tower of Droplets' by London-based CRAB Studio being the perfect example.

Architects Sir Peter Cook and Gavin Robotham have designed this tower to create algae that can be used for both biofuel and biomass. The biomass can be used to feed plants and fish while the biofuel can be used to power green automobiles. I had no idea how much potential algae in architecture had until I saw the 'Tower of Droplets.' Despite taking second place, this slimy eco-tower concept will have a bright future.
