The COR Building

I'm completely ripping this from one of my new favorite blogs, Inhabitat -- an architecture + design blog focused on sustainability -- but apparently Chad Oppenheim, Buro Happold, and Ysreal Seinuk teamed up to create a beautiful (and green!) highrise in Miami whose exterior structure includes wind turbines, photovoltaic panels, and solar hot water generation. Plus, it's pretty. What more could you want from a building?

EDIT: And -- to be sung to the tune of "It's A Small World After All" -- Inhabitat's founder Jill Fehrenbacher is actually a grad student at Columbia's GSAPP architecture school.
