Seagrass possesses the special characteristic that it hardens over time. This process creates the seagrass roofs shapeless surface character. This kind of process is known, in the science of geology,as the process of concretion.

This thesis is dealing with how buildings can be a host for the nature by using seagrass as roof material. The goal is global usage, helping to decrease the emissions of greenhouse gasses worldwide by hosting a productive vegetation. The goal is reached by combining ancient thatching technique with seagrass learned from Læsø (Denmark) with modern digital fabrication and computational design. Read More »
