Marin Sawa’s Sculptural Algaeriums

October 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

British architect and meteorologist Marin Sawa builds sculptures out of farmed algae and assorted chemistry equipment.

Algaerium is textile-inspired design for ‘cultivating’ and producing green energy in style. It creates a domesticated mode of algaculture for our urban lifestyles in the space of interior to exterior. This means it acts as aquariums for algae and the ‘living’ design serves as a new type of plants designed with a new characteristic to visualize photosynthesis through colour change.
