IN a city where smog routinely blankets the streets Uomo Nike Air Max 97 UL'17 HAL Nere Scontate , a Dutch artist has offered an eccentric solution — a 7-meter metal structure that takes in smog and expels cleaner air.

Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde talks to reporters in front of his Smog Free Tower, a structure that takes in smog and expels cleaner air, in Beijing’s 798 arts district. It’s claimed the tower is able to create an area of clean air around it. The device is to be shown in other Chinese cities. — Reuters A ring inlaid with a smog cub.

The cubes can be used to make rings, according to Roosegaarde. The tower can clean 30,000 cubic meters of fine smog per hour and uses no more electricity than a water boiler.

Daan Roosegaarde’s Smog Free Tower opened on a small, grassy lot in Beijing’s famed 798 arts district yesterday. Comprised of 45 silver plates resembling partially open window blinds, the tower contains an air-purifying machine that runs continuously with a low hum.


“That is not noise!” Roosegaarde told a visitor standing next to the tower. “That is the beautiful sound of clean air moving toward you!”


There’s hardly a more scarce resource than clean air in Beijing on a high-pollution day Uomo Nike Air Max 97 UL '17 PRM Marrone Nere Scontate , particularly during the winter when the region’s coal-fired electrical plants are running at full capacity. The levels of dust and harmful particles in Beijing’s air are among the highest in the world.


Government researchers have linked the pollution to higher rates of lung cancer and on particularly bad days schools keep children inside during playtimes and pedestrians wear masks.


Roosegaarde, whose projects focus on connecting people with nature and energy, came up with the idea for the tower after a visit to the Chinese capital three years ago during which he saw the view outside his window blocked by a thick gray haze.


“I couldn’t even see the next street,” he said. “That image changed me.”


At his studio in the Netherlands, Roosegaarde and a team of designers began working on a project that would respond to Beijing’s pollution and highlight the benefits of fighting it Uomo Nike Air Max 97 KPU TPU Nere Italia , in however limited a way. They raised more than US$120,000 online to help pay for the tower by selling metal rings with a clear cube that included a bit of black carbon from smog.


The tower began running in Beijing one week ahead of its formal unveiling. It will also be shown in other Chinese cities, including the southern commercial center of Shenzhen.


Roosegaarde wants to eventually build more towers, perhaps with funding from the Chinese government, which has made reducing pollution a priority.


He also said he hopes the tower will inspire creative thinking and innovation among people in China and other countries that are grappling with heavy pollution. He’s planning to meet inventors of projects such as a bicycle that purifies air as it is pedaled.


“We shouldn’t wait for the government to tell us what to do Uomo Nike Air Max 97 KPU TPU Nere Rosse Scontate ,” he said. “I want to start a movement, a community, which does not accept pollution anymore. We should use the energy of creative thinking to create cities where ultimately in 10-15 years these beauties are not necessary anymore.”


The tower was unveiled on a relatively good day by Beijing standards, with a bright sky and a cool early fall breeze. Standing next to dignitaries with red roses pinned to their lapels, Roosegaarde used a remote control to raise part of the tower’s panels into the air to show the machine inside.


Whether the air was actually cleaner was hard to say. An unscientific test using a handheld monitoring device throughout the day showed the air next to the tower was slightly cleaner than further away.


The tower did draw visitors walking through the district who stopped to stare at it and
