Taiwan's 'Technology Tree'

Taiwan's 'Technology Tree'

The skyline in Taichung, Taiwan will soon feature a breathtaking new tower that is designed to resemble a tree. While the interior of the building will feature a museum, restaurants, and an urban park, it's the eight external elevating observatory 'leaves' which provide the tower with its name: "Floating Observatories." Construction is scheduled to begin in 2012 with an eye on 2014 for the grand opening of the remarkable structure. More on the story, including additional conceptual images of the tower, at PhysOrg.
