Beijing Fog

27 Oct

 

If it wasn’t for the life threatening air pollution, I’d like to experience Beijing with 0% visibility.

 

 

 

Which is kind of funny because all the blogs (BLDG…dwell etc..) are running the story about Agro Housing

in China…and..well, plants need sunlight don’t they. But nonetheless the schemes look really cool. Le Corbusier wanted a nature fused with the city, and I think the average city dweller probably wants that too. Design E2 have a film about China’s building crisis, apparently if China meets its housing demands without thinking about the consequence then its residential construction industry will consume 1/4 of the world’s resources in 50 years. Which is almost unbelievably huge.

I suppose we could always exploit the next chunk of rock to meet those demands.

Or visa-versa they could move Beijing up there to escape the fog…which is now smog.
