Norway's Turbine City Concept Should Be The Future of Energy and Tourism

Norway already boasts the world's first floating wind turbine, and is apparently the windiest coastline in Europe, making it perfect for even more turbines. Or a turbine city, like On Office's proposal which shows a stunning vision of the future.

The Turbine City concept from the architectural firm not only harnesses all that valuable wind, it also shows a smart tourism scheme housing a hotel, spa and museum. The offshore wind turbines would be connected together like an archipelago of islands, and would provide a base for passing sailors and holidaymakers. If this is the future, I've got to find myself a cryogenic freezer. [On Office via Designboom]
