When I heard about this tower being built–called the True North Wind Tower–as part of Regent College’s new library, I thought it was…well, neat.

“Photovoltaic art glass merges the ancient art of stained glass with the latest solar technology to produce a window that not only looks magnificent, but also works for its living by gathering and storing electricity for later use.”

Two things I admire, but have no talent in–architecture/design and art. And this tower is functional too.
