Cool post from about a Chicago architecture firm chosen to design the greenest building ever, The Masdar Development in Abu Dhabi.

One of the things that Middle Eastern countries with gobs of cash, and gobs of oil, are doing is pushing the design envelope on Modern Architecture – sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worst – but this is a pretty good looking building and a great idea. The philosophical underpinings of it, minus the exorbitant cost and the big “if” of will it ever get finished, will have repercussions throughout the world of green building.

Give it a look. Cool.
