Smog Free Solutions hosted by the Shanghai Project, Shanghai Himalayas Museum, will explore the context and vision of Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde through a presentation of Smog Free Project and a panel discussion. The talk coincides with the global tour of Smog Free Project in China, consisting of Smog Free Tower, the world’s largest outdoor air purifier, and Smog Free Jewellery made from its collected smog. Roosegaarde will highlight #smogfree as part of his wider oeuvre, best known as “Landscapes of the Future,” designs to connect space, technology, and people in an effort to improve daily life in sprawling cities.
In cooperation with the Shanghai Project, Studio Roosegaarde invites local visionaries and academics to discuss social design for change, smog as inspiration and urgency, creative approaches to urban landscape, and nature as an inspiration for cities of the future. In an effort to engage with local audiences, the platform will open to the public for discussion around #smogfree in China. Artists, makers, and academics can here converge to share and exchange original smog solutions for cities of tomorrow. The public will be invited to engage and interact with panelists, and to share their motivations, processes, obstacles, and results from their own #smogfree journeys.
