A twisting, smog-eating tower is going up in Taipei, Taiwan.

On the outside, 23,000 trees and shrubs - nearly the same amount found in New York's Central Park - will fill the skyscraper's facade, roof, and balconies. And inside, it will feature 40 luxury condos.

The plants will absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year - the equivalent of about 27 cars, lead designer Vincent Callebut tells Business Insider.
