Healthy buildings

In her column "Surreal Estate," Carol Lloyd writes about modern office buildings designed to make its occupants healthy—or at least not make them sick.

For instance, the building in the photo below (headquarters of a newspaper company in Shanghai, China) was "designed with a lung that provides it with natural air circulation."

After my last PG&E bill, I can appreciate the significance of design features like that.

There's a slideshow of images like the one below.
