A Proposal To Transform London’s BT Tower Into A POLLUTION Harvester

A Proposal To Transform London’s BT Tower Into A POLLUTION Harvester | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Royal College of Art graduate Chang-Yeob Lee’s ‘Synth[e]tech[e]cology’ project aims to repurpose the BT Tower into pollution harvesting skyscraper that extracts carbon from petrol fumes to produce sustainable bio-fuels. 

Lee chose to base his design around the 620-ft telecommunications tower because of its predicted redundancy and its location in one of the most polluted areas in London. The redesigned tower would serve as a way to gather economically valuable resources from pollutants in the atmosphere while reducing the level of respiratory illness in the city. 

“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting”, said Lee. “We allow them to disperse because we've been ignorant of their value. Pollution could be another economy.”
The tower will also include “a vertical oil field laboratory and a laboratory for future resources present in the atmosphere”.

I feel like this is something out of a science fiction. But it is evident to expect the greatest technology advancements to be in the medical sector. This is an example of integrating medical technology with CAD (Computer Aided Design) styled software.
