Greener Than Green In Paris

Ugly Betty? Yes, but the greenest in the world, so call it sexy!
This SOM-designed 750,000 square foot office complex going up just outside Paris may lack a certain je ne sais quoi, but it redeems itself by being "The greenest in the world," as it is planned not to consume more energy than it creates.
