The Smog Free Tower is a self-explanatory architectural structure, designed by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde, that is essentially the world's largest air purifier. This tower draws in dirty air and purifies it before releasing it back into the environment. This allows for the creation of a bubble that is 75% cleaner than the rest of the city.

The tower will also use filtered smog particles to create jewelry by compressing them into cubes and mounting them in rings and cufflinks. Not only does this make for fascinating pieces of jewelry, but it also helps make the concept of smog more tangible and understandable.

It remains to be seen whether the Smog Free Tower can actually inspire other such architectural designs, but what's just as important is the awareness it is creating about air pollution.
