Micro Emission Sun-Moon Mansion, Dezhou, China

The brainchild of architect Huang Ming, known as the ‘Sun King’ and the ‘Solar Energy Mad Man’, this building was completed in 2010 for approximately US$740mn. Constructed to function as a hotel, exhibition centre, research facility and more, the Sun-Moon Mansion was made to resemble a sundial to track the arc of the sun effectively, no matter what the time of year. 

This is accomplished via an impressive array of photovoltaic panels covering an area of 50,000 sq ft.
