Wonders of the World - Business Week
BusinessWeek surveys green architecture around the world. Renzo Piano's J.M. Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia, combines technology as well as culture - utilising local timbers and traditional construction methods reflecting sustainable attitudes & the local economy. The buildings mimic the island's traditional Kanak huts, blending into their surroundings, and allowing natural ventilation into the interiors.
