cladireA CO2 skyscraper is a very large building “provided” with 400 massive trees which convert and absorb carbon emissions and other pollutants into oxygen.

The project, conceived by a team of California-based engineering and a design firm, Nectar, is relatively simple to build and was designed to be placed near the plants and factories.

The trees that will be planted in the building’s structure will be wetted and maintained to absorb emissions from the air. In addition, the considerable amount of shade offered by the building will keep cool air during summer.

In Singapore, a complex of ecological Skyscrapers is almost complete. The project stretches over 48 square kilometers and contains only buildings with “eco”  technology.
