Air Conditioning Bill Too High? Should’ve Moved Into This Building

Apparently the oddly arranged 600mm diameter circular windows on this building in India are not a hidden message from aliens, but a clever way to create ambiance indoors while saving up to 25 per cent on air-conditioning costs.

Those opaque windows combined with the concrete “fins” on the side of the building act as a heat barrier and reduce cooling costs dramatically. I just don’t know if the savings are worth the mockery for living in a chunk of Swiss cheese, even if it’s a pretty chunk of Swiss cheese. [WAN]
