The 213,700-square-meter Pearl River Tower redefines what is possible in sustainable design by incorporating the latest green technology and engineering advancements. The soaring tower's sculpted body directs wind to a pair of openings at its mechanical floors, where traveling winds push turbines that generate energy for the building. Other integrated sustainable elements include solar panels, a double-skin curtain wall, a chilled ceiling system, under-floor ventilation, and daylight harvesting, all of which contribute to the building’s energy efficiency.
