Taiwan office superstructure could double as a power plant

What if the Eiffel Tower and Tokyo Tower weren't just tourist attractions but full-fledged power plants? That's the dream one group of architects hope to bring to Taiwan with their new Tower of Power concept.

Designed by NL Architects, the 984 feet high structure would combine windmill dynamics with the design attraction of a city monument. Up to 600 rotors would produce 6 megawatts of power, while the structure itself would also function as an office building and a city observation platform. The design is an entry in the Taiwan Tower Competition. The winner will be announced on November 11. You can see more views of the proposed Tower of Power in the gallery below.
