Living Light Sculpture Offers Data on Air Quality


This amazing sculpture, called Living Light, installed in South Korea at the World Cup Stadium's Peace Park.

The outdoor pavilion along with glass covering projects latest information on the local air quality. The designers of this sculpture are Soo-in Yang and David Benjamin, representing The Living. Their creation has one interesting feature - its glass skin represents a huge redrawn map of 27 neighborhoods that can be found in Seoul.

The city's neighborhoods light up if the air quality is better than the same period last year. The quality of air is analyzed by the real-time sensors from the Korean Ministry of Environment. By sending text messages to the device, citizens will receive a response with information about air quality in specific neighborhoods.

According to the designers, the glass skins used on their device could be used on buildings, making them more attractive and creating informative public space.

//1, no 'informative public space' means that these glass skins could be used for social needs like informing the city's visitors about interesting locations and places they look forward to visit.
