Ecobreath

The project starting point considers the symbiotic dynamics of the lichens, based on two vital processes of most of the ecosystems: photosynthesis and fermentation. The structural and geometrical configuration has been generated to allow daily blooming, provoked by the CO2 production, oxygen absorption and sunlight management. According to the symbiotic principle two material fields are proposed: the down one dedicated to the fermentation process and related to the decomposition of plants organic waste, and the upper one, dedicated to photosynthesis and plant growing. The test of the machine proliferation in a territorial scale is based on the definition of gradients that consider the different quantities of organic waste production, of CO2 production and O2 absorption between the urban areas and the agricultural fields.
