Architect Anders Nyquist  shows us an simple and ingenious method of filtering our indoor air with living filters: plants. Not only do we get cleaner air inside homes, commercial or public buildings, but reduced air conditioning costs as well. The fact that these spaces look more beautiful is just a bonus.
