A Microcosm

University of Westminster | 2013

The UK plans to become a world leader in carbon capture storage in the future, coinciding with these plans the project forms a closed-loop eco system that becomes a means of local economic revival. The hub creates a point of local tourism by providing internal gardens, exposing the closed loop process as an educational tour, and encouraging a place of bird gathering and watching.

 

The system constitutes a combination of water, carbon and waste. Algae is cultivated in a large runway producing biofuel, clean water and a natural algae waste by product.

This by product then falls to ponds where it provides feed for fish cultivation, with excess waste allowing for a further production of seaweed in outer rings.
