Green architecture continues to get innovative and the Strata as the first skyscraper to have a built-in wind turbine is just one of the proofs that architects are dedicated enough in helping save the environment. The Strata is a latest addition to the London’s skyline and strikes many eyes with its three built-in wind turbine that produces 8% of the structure’s energy needs. All of the three wind turbines are incorporated on the Strata’s façade and is made possible via a tricky engineering by the Brookfield Europe. The 148-meters long tower has 42 stories and is designed to make use f the Venturi effect produces by nearby structures in order to force wind through the turbines. The wind turbines are expected to produce 50MWh of electricity per year.
