Photosynthesis / Environmental Construction

Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis

“Photosynthesis” is a conception of design intending to reduce the harm that noxious fumes bring to the pedestrians.

The concept comes from the principal that green plants produce oxygen via photosynthesis. Making use of the electricity generated from solar panels, the air cleaning systems will be driven and then purify the dirty air surrounded.

Generally, walkers spend much time waiting at intersections and bus stops. Two designs applying the principals of photosynthesis consequently came out – "Sprout the crosswalk signal" and "Vine the bus shelter" sited at downtown.
