Amazing glass building

Manuel Géa González Hospital in Mexico City. The snow-white, openwork facade of this building can react with street smog and grind it into safe, environmentally friendly particles!

Tiles with the content of titanium dioxide, a common component of solar shields, became the material for the manufacture of the facade. When sunlight gets on the tile, smog reacts with it and splits into carbon dioxide, water, and calcium nitrate. The lattice ornament of tiles contributes to the spread of reaction throughout the wall area. The building is able to neutralize the exhausts of thousands of cars passing by. This technology also facilitates air conditioning in the wards of the hospital and filters the light.

If there were a dozen such buildings in a multi-million city, the air conditioner

could be significantly improved, especially near multi-story parking lots. The creation of an unusual design by the designers of the Berlin company Elegant Establishments, who created the project, was inspired by the look of natural forms - corals.
