Originally proposed for the new Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science (2017), the Algae Bio-Display looks at the use of algae and its many beneficial properties – carbon sequestration, water filtration, and its potential use as a biofuel - as a façade system. Positioned between the Philip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and the Pérez Art Museum Miami, a large 40' vacant vertical wall facing the East is activated to become not only a visualization display using algae but also a system that filters greywater and carbon dioxide from the Philip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. In addition, the Algae Bio-Display provides cooling and irrigation for people and plants in the plaza below. A proof of concept prototype was built testing the visualization capabilities of this proposal, more information can be found here
Algae Bio-Display won the AIA Miami Honor Award of Excellence - Un-built Project 2017.
