World's Coolest Futuristic Buildings: One Bligh Street

H.G. Esch

One Bligh Street, Sydney

Another feat of green urban design, this high-rise office building in Sydney’s Central Business District features a double-skin glass façade, a naturally ventilated central atrium, and computer-controlled shades that flood the building with natural light while maintaining comfortable temperatures. The building isn’t just green in name either: it features an outdoor "living wall" of plants as a backdrop to the ground-floor cafe, a leafy rooftop terrace with views of Sydney Harbour, and Australia’s largest vertical garden.
