Herzog & de Meuron imagine green Paris pyramid (photos)

Architects Herzog & de Meuron unveiled Le Project Triangle in 2008, but the project received approval in 2011 for construction in Paris, France. The structure will rise 200 meters from the Porte de Versailles, and will use its distinct shape to optimize solar and wind power generation. It's also the first high-rise to be approved in the city center since 1977. It's due for completion in 2017.
