Comments Off on SOM’s Soaring 99 Story Pertamina Skyscraper to Harness Wind Energy in Indonesia

Skidmore, Owings & Mills have just unveiled their centerpiece design for Pertamina’s new headquarters: a futuristic “energy beacon” that dramatically pierces Jakarta’s skyline.

Comments Off on The E-Quickie: A Plug-Free, Induction-Powered Electric Car
