外文标题：Giant ‘bubbles’ to help beat smog in China?
BEIJING: A London-based architecture and design company co-founded by an Indian has come up with a new solution called "Bubbles" to combat the increasing air pollution in China.
Their project which is still in the conceptual stage, would be able to create outdoor green spaces which would be covered by giant bubble-shaped domes in the Chinese cities where adverse environmental conditions mean that people are unable to spend time outdoors without risking their health.
The architectural concept "bubble" will be in the form of a covered botanical garden, retail and office complex under a giant transparent roof.
"Bubbles structure encloses a botanical garden offered a giant balloon with filtered air with controlled temperature and humidity throughout the year," Rajat Sodhi, co-founder of the Orproject, an architecture practice with offices in London, Beijing and New Delhi told the South China Morning Post.
Bubbles is based on the principles of biomimetic architecture, typically lightweight environmental structures inspired by nature.
The geometry of the Bubbles canopy was generated using an algorithm that simulates the development of veins in leaves or in butterfly wings, he said.
"It's just an infrastructure project like building metro stations and parks — it's applicable in every dense, polluted metropolis where there's a need for open, green spaces throughout the year," he said.
If they are going to put buildings and gardens inside bubbles, then why not design a small walking Bubble where a person can wear an air conditioned bubble and walk through polluted cities of China and then India will need as well ofcourse.

The problem of air pollution cannot be solved by pushing people to live in bubbles. Much of the heavy metal mercury that is found in fish is because of air pollution

very poor solutions and thinking ......... they just want to make money not at all concerned about environment.

Creating an new technology is good. But instead if we could reduce global warming by reducing the pollution that would be great...

Lets hope this Bubble works out or it will turn out just another bubble .....
This not a correct measure... this just temporary solution.. think of alternate energy to reduce pollution...

Let us see it's pros n cons when it starts working..

It is a good beginning to protect a particular area suffering from thick smog in metro cities.
I thought we were designing Bubbles for the. ..Power Plants!

..converting CO2 in to Bio Fuel. ..Wet or Dry
Typical case of curing the symptoms rather than the disease to have a perpetual source of income! :-)
