Breathing Window / Window

Breathing Window
Breathing Window

More sandstorms makes it uneasy to open the windows. And in many skyscrapers the windows could not be opened. In this idea, we use solar power and other new technology and materials to create a “breathing” window which could transfer solar power into electrical energy to purify the air. We make the window not only looks like but also works like the plants. It can do “photosynthesis” by its solar panels which is the “leaves”, and transfer energy through the “tree trunk”.
