7 of 22

Designed
to resemble a sundial, the world’s largest solar building opened in 2009. Its
800,000 square feet of space is festooned with thousands of solar panels and
features exhibit halls, scientific research facilities, and the 180-room International Solar Micro-Emission Hotel, which utilizes
solar power and “will leave you impressive memory forever,”
according to the website. The building is rumored to have
used less than 1 percent of the steel used in Beijing’s Olympic Bird’s Nest. —Adam H. Graham
