Cooler Than A Mushroom

We normally think of central air conditioners as large cube shaped metal crates that do nothing for a building’s figure but the Mushroom AHU (air handling unit) proves design can make a world a difference. Apparently the shape of a mushroom is well suited to circulate air. One day, large buildings may have clusters of mushrooms in alleys and rooftops. I love the idea if it works but I’m more concerned about art imitating life. Are my Super Mario dreams coming true?
