Taiwan's 'Tao Zhu Yin' Eco Architecture Absorbs Carbon Emission

Paris-based architect Vincent Callebaut wants his buildings to be more than your average tower block. One of his eco-friendly ideas is taking root right now in Taipei, Taiwan's capital city. When Tao Zhu Yin Yuan -- meaning "The Retreat of Tao Zhu" -- is completed in September 2017, the residential complex will be covered in 23,000 trees and shrubs. If all goes to plan, Callebaut says the plants will absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions each year -- the equivalent of around 27 cars.
