From Inhabitat:

While it may look like a giant carnival ferris wheel, the LO2P: Delhi Recycling Center concept by Atelier CMJN isn't playing any games when it comes to cleaning up the city of New Dehli. The towering greenhouse is constructed out of parts of recycled cars from local junk piles and has wind turbines inside that act as a set of bio-lungs for the polluted city. While it's still just a concept, the fantastic design recently grabbed first place in this year's eVolo Skyscraper competition.

The winners for one of our favorite architectural competitions were just announced and we couldn't be more pleased with the results as many of the skyscrapers incorporated awesome sustainable design with out of this world concepts. First place for this year's eVolo Skyscraper competition was LO2P: Delhi Recycling Center designed by Atelier CMJN led by Julien Combes, Gaël Brulé of France, and it couldn't be more fantastic. Conceived as a giant greenhouse constructed out of parts of recycled cars, the ferris wheel-like building with wind turbine inside serves as a set of super bio-lungs for polluted New Delhi.
