The task was to design a high-rise appartment building on the area alongside of arterial road. There are some problems to solve: noise, possible overheating of the appertments because of extra solar radiation, pollutant-loaded air considering traffic. The remedy for these problems lies in establishing the protective structure on the building façade. The structure covers the building surface of 200-290 rhumbs. It sets up a shady barrier for the area with maximum solar radiation and an acoustic barrier which deaden the sound of traffic. Planting of greenery on some parts of the structure significantly reduces the heating of the construction and partly solves the problem of automobile polluting emissions.
