Answer in the wind
From an architectural viewpoint, the cherry on the cake of the Pavilion of Citizen Initiatives, El FARO at EXPO 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain is certainly the wind-generated air conditioning system [see photo].
I continue to visit the pavilion periodically to advise my friends from Zaragoza's Ecology and Development Foundation.
I just suggested that they add a display around the chimney under the windmill, where visitors could learn more about the process, discover how much electricity is being spared, become aware of what is wrong with conventional air conditioning systems, and read about existing alternatives available on the market.
Bob Dylan is one of the icons of EXPO Zaragoza.
Listen my friend, the answer is in the wind.
