As well as letting the wind through, these vents will also house air intake and exhaust systems on mechanical floors - and provide an out of view place to hide window-washing systems. The ventilation systems will also include rotary air-to-air enthalpy wheels - also known as thermal wheels - to capture energy from the building's exhaust systems and use it to pre-heat or pre-cool air entering the building."
