Top 65 Architecture Trends in September

From Smog-Absorbing Tower Grids to Nostalgic Pizza Bars

— September 29, 2018 — Eco
The September 2018 architecture examples present a contemporary style and sustainable designs. For example, Dubai-based firm Znera is addressing the smog problem of New Delhi — a city that has been identified as the most polluted in the world by the World Health Organization. The concept envisions a grid of filtration towers that can produce about 3.2 million cubic meters of clean air per day.

adidas Originals, on the other hand, is bringing together the art of designing for urban cities with the craft of satisfying urban citizens through the P.O.D.System Architecture project. This initative brings together skilled designers and gives them a task to create a concept that corresponds to the recently launched P.O.D.System shoe. The designs included in the September 2018 architecture list are a whimsical urban park and an energy-harvesting pavilion.
