River in the best building - level 1, A12
Every year, the biggest world festival of houses and buildings is in Cannes in France. The festival has a game for the best architects. The architects try to build the best office building in the world.
There were 100 office buildings in the game this year. The three best buildings were from England, Holland and the Czech Republic.
The best building was from the Czech Republic. Why is this building the best?
It has big outside pillars. They block the strong sun. In summer, the building is cold because water from a river makes it cold. The river goes under the building. The air system is very quiet. Nobody can hear it. The air in the building is very fresh and very clean.
You can see the building in the video.
