The intensification of the climate warming has led to a sharp decrease in ice sheets in Greenland and the Arctic Ocean and an increase in heat absorbed by the oceans as a result of melting sea ice, which is the evidence of the beginning of a vicious ecological cycle caused by increased climate warming. Consequently, protecting the polar glaciers and covering the Arctic permafrost is the ultimate goal of the construction of the Arctic Protection Tower for the balanced development of the local biological chain.

Due to the expansion of land requirement, our living spaces gradually covered with high-rise buildings, however in contrast, nature environment decreased by time. High density of buildings cause air pressure which is huge and easy to be got. If we can use this power with a more efficient way, we may release the pressure and destroy to the environment. Besides, the urban square provides intelligent natural resources cycle system and combines the design of water, light, wind and temperature, allows people having a comfortable public space.
