Unique curving towers with wind turbines concept harnesses wind power and makes the towers self -sustainable.

These two curving towers, called the Gullwing, designed by Vittorio Minervini and Giacomo Sanna, cofounder of the ARXX studio, have wind turbines incorporated into the building's structure. The circular structure of the towers channel the wind like a tornado and enough energy is created from the harnessed wind to power the buildings.

For more information, a video of the curving buildings spinning, and to see other eco-friendly ARXX designs visit the ARXX website.
