The Leipziger Allee Center is not only a popular and well-visited mall in Leipzig’s Grünau district, but has also recently become the location of a brand new technology that improves the air for thousands of visitors every day: Four CityBreeze, digital information stelae that combine a large-format outdoor screen with an air filter based on natural moss, have been installed here.
The ambient air is sucked in from the side and passed through mats of natural and living high-performance moss, which can be seen on the back of the stelae. On the one hand, the moss removes harmful fine dust particles from the air and can even metabolise them. On the other hand, the evaporative power of the moss cools the air by a few degrees – a welcome additional effect, especially on the increasingly hot days. This creates real fresh air oases around the digital information points.
