Dassault Systèmes showcases pollution-absorbing architecture by Kengo Kuma and Daan Roosegaarde

Kengo Kuma and Daan Roosegaarde are among the architects and designers presenting proposals to tackle air pollution, in this movie Dezeen filmed for Dassault Systèmes.

During Milan design week, the 3D software company presented an exhibition called Design in the Age of Experience, which showcased ideas for improving air quality.

It featured an audio-visual installation by artist Wesley Goatley and London studio Superflux, as well as a large air-purifying sculpture by Kengo Kuma and Associates and some of the work of Roosegaarde’s Smog Free Project.

Kuma’s six-metre high structure was made from large pleated coils of a special pollution-neutralising material, which trapped particles of pollution as air passed through the mesh fabric.

“This installation can absorb the pollution of 90,000 cars in a year,” Kuma claims in the movie.
