The beautiful image above is a prototype for a building designed by Vincent Callebaut. It's pretty funky-looking from this angle. Funky is good.

The cool thing about it is that it's an anti-smog building. Not only is it built using sustainable materials, it uses green technologies to actually clean the air around it! It's currently being built in Paris and is cover with 250 swuare meters of solar photovoltaic panels and coated in titanium dioxide. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but apparently it's good for the environment. You can find out more about it at the green geek.
