When it was time to design new offices for a steel pipe factory, a clever guy decided to use the factory's product as a major part of the new additions. Puns about pipe dream designs aside, it looks pretty good.

Designed by Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects for T. Bailey, these offices will integrate giant steel pipes, the type used for wind turbines. The pipes aren't just for looks though, because they'll also serve to control how air flows through the building, reducing cooling costs in the process.


I rather like this design and its post-Apocalyptic-looking mock ups, because it'll fit perfectly with the industrial surroundings of the factory. Let's just hope it really gets built. [Dezeen]
