Danny Mui and Benjamin Sahagun
One of the most impressive features of the towers that Chicago architect students Danny Mui and Benjamin Sahagun have designed is that carbon dioxide funneled to the roof is used to feed algae, which, in turn, can be converted to fuel for alternative-fuel cars that the towers' residents may drive.
Two architects in Chicago have designed a building so sustainable that it actually cleans the air around it.
Designed by architectural students Danny Mui and Benjamin Sahagun, the lopsided CO2ngress Gateway Towers would sit above the Eisenhower Expressway, a busy city highway that sees as many as 77,000 cars a day. The designers aim to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions from these passing vehicles by employing a filtration system on the skyscraper that would scrub the surrounding air clean.
