The Dutch have combined sustainable innovations, energy efficiency and high-class design in a new architecture modell called ” the Dutch Windwheel”. This model consists of steel, glass and the building itself produces the energy needed. The new design has got inspirations from the London Eye.
The building hub is planned to be build in the port of Rotterdam, Holland and for example parts of the building are underwater. This new modell is designed by a consortium by BLOCK, DoepelStrijkers and Meysters. The building would include panorama restaurant, sky lobby, hotel, apartments and commercials. Some of the “rollcoaster or cabins” are embedded with smart walls that is touch-screen glass panels for different kind of data and information.
It is estimated that this building would be visited by 1,5 million people per year and the consortium believes that the building would be break-even in 10 years. The construction is about to start in 2018 and end between 2020 and 2022.
