River in the best building - level 3, A12
Every year, the biggest world festival of houses and buildings takes place in Cannes, France. Part of the festival is a world architects competition. The architects try to design and build the best office building in the world.
There were about 100 office buildings in the competition this year. The three finalists were from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.
The building from the Czech Republic was the winner. Why is this building the best?
It has special outside pillars which block the strong sun. The building is cooled with water from a river which goes through the building. The air conditioning is so quiet that nobody can hear it. The air in the building is very fresh and absolutely clean.
You can see the building in the video.
