“The structure of The Tulip is also eco-friendly as its soft bud-like form and minimal building footprint reflects its reduced resource use, with high-performance glass and optimized building systems reducing its energy consumption. Heating and cooling are provided by zero combustion technology while integrated photovoltaic cells generate energy on site,” reports Hype Beast.
