Limited edition Beijing Smog Free Ring on sale
Since arriving at 751 D-Park for Beijing Design Week, Daan Roosegaarde's pollution-foiling Smog Free Tower has been working overtime, luring in unsuspecting particulates to be compressed into jewellery, namely the feel-good Smog Free Ring.
As a nod to the city that inspired it, the Smog Free Ring is now available in a limited Beijing edition – featuring even more smog! Orders can be placed by contacting Studio Roosegaarde
directly, but do be aware, this shiny wee thought-provoker will run you roughly 250EUR.
Alternatively, you can head to 751 D-Park Power Square, where the Tower will remain for the rest of the month, and breathe a pocket of fresh air for free.

Design for new 'translucent' concert hall in Gongti unveiled
Plans have been released for a stunning new concert hall, which will be located just next to Workers' Stadium.
The China Philharmonic Hall is designed by China-based MAD Architects and expected to be complete by 2019, according to Arch Daily.
The really cool part is the translucent facade, which will allow natural light through in the day, and at night will host visual projections to harmonise with the music. Check out more images of the amazing structure
to see for yourself.
