ANTI-SMOG ARCHITECTURE


In the most populated metropolis in the world, pollution has now become a problem to be taken seriously. Is it possible to reduce the contraction of smog every day without consuming energy? It seems so. This is demonstrated by the Amager Bakke located in Copenhagen. It is a state-of-the-art incinerator that, in addition to providing heat to five Danish municipalities, producing electricity for 120,000 families and burning 45,000 tons of waste a year, will also clean the air. By 2025 Copenhagen has the goal of becoming a zero-emission city and Amager Bakke supports this important goal: with its facade covered with aluminum bricks and smog-eating plants, architecture is able to break down substances every day in a natural way. This architecture is the perfect example of sustainable architecture that does not renounce the need of cities to maintain a high population density. In fact, the roof of the Amager Bakke is used as a sports facility, which acts as an artificial ski slope and a trekking track in a place where the smog is almost eliminated.
