World's tallest buildings will clean air   

世界上最高的建筑将能净化空气

London (CNN) -- Imagine a skyscraper that cleans the air. You won't have to wait long -- two will soon be built in China.

想象一下一座能净化空气的摩天大楼吧,不用多久,两座这样的高楼将在中国落成。

The world's tallest towers, futuristic pink spires that "breath life" into the environment, are due to begin construction within two years.

世界最高的双塔名为“呼吸生活”拥有未来感十足的粉红色尖顶外表,计划在两年内动工。

The ambitious Phoenix towers were designed by London-based architects Chetwoods and will claim the tallest building title fromDubai's Burj Khalifa.

这种野心十足的凤凰双塔是由伦敦大本营的建筑师Chetwoods设计的,声称是继迪拜的哈利法塔之后最高的建筑物。总部设在伦敦的Chetwoods建筑设计事务所(建筑设计公司)

And the design goes one step further: The towers will be one of the world's most environmentally-friendly buildings.

这个还多了一个特色——它建成后会是世界上最环保的建筑之一。

Stretching up more than a kilometer into the skies above Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province, the Phoenix project aims to clean the air and water from its surrounding areas. It's expected to become a tourist attraction for both Chinese and international travelers.

凤凰项目是在中国湖北省武汉市建造从地面向天空延伸一千米的双尖塔,目标是净化其周围的空气和水。这双塔有望成为吸引中外游客的旅游景点。

Chetwoods chairman Laurie Chetwood told CNN the project is more than just an architectural statement. It's also about preserving the lakes of the region, he said.

Chetwoods公司的董事长Laurie Chetwood告知CNN,这个计划不仅仅是一个建筑学上的说明,它也是关于保护该地区湖泊的计划这个计划不仅仅是一件建筑学上的重大事件,同时也事关保护该区域的湖泊水源

"You can imagine the pressure those lakes are under, [with] a huge dense city growing around them," he said. "So we thought we could not only attract attention with the towers but also breathe life, literally, into the lakes."

他说:“随着城市建筑越来越密集,你可以想象那些湖泊在城市夹缝中的生存压力。所以我们认为我们不但可以在湖中增加一个双塔的景点而且还能自由地呼吸生活。”所以我们认为,我们不仅可以利用双子塔来吸引游客,而且能够通过湖泊“呼吸生活”,正如字面上一样
