Water Lilly Brick

Water Lilly photoreactors bricks array

We’re beginning to explore new directions in the Water Lilly project, looking for a brick system that can be used to create architectural envelopes to grow micro-algae. This very first brick array is the starting point of an entire new research branch that aims to deveop real architectural components that can be used to create vertical algae growing buildings. Every brick is a little photo bio reactor filled with water based bio solution, and can be connected to others with a piping system to enlarge the growing field. The brick components will be equippped with automatic LED systems, ventilation fans, light and movement sensors. Easy harvesting systems will be explored as well. Geometrically complex surfacing  can be explored with the use of paneling tools.

More coming soon…
