Double Duty

Denmark is scheduled to get a power plant disguised as a ski slope. The new plant will use waste to generate electricity, with the building being built around it creating the only downhill skiing opportunity in Copenhagen.

The ski slope will be constructed out of recyled synthetics and the blocks used for the exterior will double as planters, giving the building a green facade. It's not scheduled to open until 2016, which should give you time to tune your skis and make some practice turns before the opening. See here for more details.
