Architect Vincent Callebaut’s latest project balances public galleries , meeting rooms and gathering spaces over canals and abandoned railroad tracks in the 19th Parisian district. Callebaut describes the process as an intention to “absorb and recycle by photo-catalytic effect the cloud of harmful gases (Smog) from the intense traffic near Paris” [source: Inhabitat].
Definitely a worthy and proactive effort at going beyond the traditional green architecture.
