The future is now in Dubai, London, and other cities being reshaped by these cool new buildings.

Bullitt Center, Seattle

18 of 26

Leave it to Seattle to come up with the world’s greenest office building: the 50,000-square-foot Bullitt Center, set to become a new prototype for urban sustainability thanks to rainwater collection, a green roof that filters the building’s gray water, and a pavement that allows water to infiltrate into the soil, reducing runoff into Puget Sound. While harnessing enough sunshine in cloudy Seattle to power a six-story building sounds daunting, the expansive roof covered with solar panels is up to the challenge—it also multitasks as a rainwater-capturing cistern. High ceilings and an external, glass-enclosed staircase mean tenants get to enjoy ample light and views, too. bullittcenter.org

Launch Date: 2013
