Mexico City is the global king of smog. But the structure surrounding this building – which contains titanium dioxide that activates with sunlight- reduces the impact of air pollution.
The technology behind this smog-eating building was developed by Berlin-based design firm Elegant Embellishments.
This was a government initiative fully funded by the Ministry of Health.
Construction has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world.
In this context, ecological awareness becomes essential to building a in many of the world’s most polluted cities.
