Bioreceptive Concrete Panels, 2017-2019
These concrete panels are designed to encourage the growth of mosses, lichens, and algae—all resilient organisms that conduct photosynthesis and absorb air pollution. The concrete is milled to produce fissures and depressions in geometries that are optimized to be bioreceptive. The panels are then seeded, creating a favorable environment for biocolonization when they are installed as architectural façades.
