INSIGHT: ARCHITECTURE WITH A PURPOSE

A truly inspiring architectural design that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional! Designed by Italian architectural firm, Nemesi & Partners, the Italian Pavilion will purify the surrounding atmosphere and generate energy with the installment of photovoltaic glass. With 9,000 square meters of photocatalytic concrete–a type of material that breaks down nitric and nitrogen oxides when exposed to sunlight–the façade of the building will act as a giant smog filter. Green building designs have become more common than ever and it will be interesting to see how these innovative designs will be adapted into the lives of everyday consumers in the coming decade.
