  • Slide show: 14 buildings offer glimpse of the future
    Check out this slide show featuring 14 "futuristic" buildings. They include the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Spaceport America in New Mexico and the W57 Pyramid in New York City. "These futuristic buildings are not only visually arresting, they offer novel solutions to the challenges that lie ahead, such as harvesting water from clouds (as Dubai's vertigo-inducing, 2,716.5-foot-high Burj Khalifa does), creating high-rise rooftop forests, and offering perks like charging stations for electric cars," Emma Sloley writes.
