International Algae Competition: Urban Algae Culture

May 11, 2012 |

Algae Landscape Design First Prize

Urban Algae Culture in Gangxiacun, Shenzhen China, by Kady, Wong Hoi Kei & Kate, Lau Hoi Ying & Perry Li.

The Urban River from Waste to Source is a proposed masterplan for an urban village of 20,000 people within the larger Shenzhen city of 14 million people.

The proposal re-articulates the ‘urban river’, the historic landform of Shenzhen, as a decentralized wastewater treatment network with recycled water on a roofscape. This elevated urban river roofscape has modular algae units for waste treatment and fuel production, urban farming and community space.
