An architecture firm called Ant Studio has partnered with company DEKI Electronics to create a cooling system that is electricity free. The installation is built into DEKI's factory, and arranges hundreds of cone-shaped terracotta tubes into a honeycomb-like circle. Inhabitat reports that when kept wet, consistent evaporation lowers the temperature in the building from about 122 degree Fahrenheit to about 96 degrees around the sculpture, 107 degrees atmospherically. That may sound pretty hot still, but the difference of those 13 degrees could be life and death for some.
