astragal Bioclimatically speaking

Rediscovering nature's wisdom sounds a sensible title for the 2005 World Fair in Seto City, Japan, since that country has temporarily mislaid its economic wisdom. So far, the most dramatic suggestion comes from my old friend Ken Yeang, who wants to build a 150-storey, 590m tower - large enough to contain all the functions expected at a world fair, and small enough at ground level to leave much of the forested site undisturbed. That's what I call bioclimatology.
