Algae bio-powering cells



Energy is at the centre of contemporary urban landscape development like water has been an important factor for ancient cities establishment and expansion. In pre-industrial times rivers and lakes have been strongly influencing the morphogenesis of cities however presently contemporary energy infrastructures are instead often segregated from the city itself, hidden in places, not considered relevant to an urban life. This form of segregation inherited from modernity (zoning) appears across scales and regimes from the urban to the material, as we can observe from the classic juxtaposition of arrays of solar photovoltaic cells over landscapes as well roofs and facades.alge sa PS fajla

The studio aims at the subverting this paradigm of segregation by envisioning novel bio-technological prototypes whose morphology, materiality and esthetic novelty are emergent qualities of specific flows of energy and information.
