I’m sure most people can recall the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China, but beyond Michael Phelps’ historic performance in the aquatic center, there is another significant thing I remember about those games. I remember in the months and weeks leading up to the games, there was international concern over the air quality in and around Beijing. The evening news featured videos showing smog and haze engulfing the major Chinese cities – especially Beijing – and showed people wearing masks over their mouths and noses as they walked their daily commute. With China’s huge population, it is a country that has long been concerned with issues of sustainability, conservation, energy efficiency, and pollution. As early as the mid-1990’s the Chinese government was working with architects and urban planners to develop a strategy for sustainable growth. Despite previous failed projects (like this one), leaders in China continue to seek out the world’s brightest design-minds and sustainability experts to address the country’s growth, conservation, and sustainability issues.


Visually, green towers provide an interesting vertical Green Living Wall to the skyline. (This photo is just an example, not the project mentioned in the article.)
