Algae Ivy, NC, USA

Inspired by symbiosis where multiple organisms benefit each other, the Algae IVY promotes the coexistence between microalgae and humans. Microalgae utilize carbon dioxide as their primary nutrient source, which is generated by human activity. By capturing and utilizing this CO2, the Algae IVY plays an active role in reducing carbon emissions and improving indoor air quality. When users want to block intense sunlight and heat, microalgae rapidly grow and provide effective shading solutions. During winter months when sunlight is limited, the microalgae adjust their growth rate accordingly. By growing slower during this time, they ensure maximum solar gain for users while still improving indoor air quality. The beauty of this system lies in its ability to seamlessly integrate into our daily lives while providing tangible advantages for both humans and microalgae alike.
