A Case Study of the Houston Discovery Tower

ImageThe designers of tall buildings are showing an increasing interest in reducing the environmental impact of the construction and operation of their buildings. One of the approaches that is being used, and investigated more frequently, is the incorporation of on-site power generation, primarily by including solar and wind devices in the design of the building.

This article examines considerations for introducing wind power generation on tall buildings and how they can be specifically applied to the Discovery Tower.
