The challenge was to detect circular economy - and design potentials of algae as a future material resource, as well as to link the cultivation of algae to urban material streams. Algae have the capacity to clean water naturally from a broad range of pollutants, while they produce valuable biomass.
The project was organized in the following steps:
The result of the project was a prototype-material for the construction industries developed from the algae. To exhibit the project's idea and outcome, an installation was built, displaying the process of growing algae and the material "algaecrete”.
