CAIGUIRE ISLAND \ SKYSCRAPER \ EVOLO 2020
An optimal ground for growth and proliferation of algae gives way to the development of the proposal. “Caiguire-Al Island” seeks to establish the development and use of this plant at its best expression. From product to environmental problem-solver. The structure uses its surroundings to create a dynamic ecosystem between its users and the production of algae in the area.
The project proposes a sustainable city-within-city concept and provides both means of efficiency and accommodation for a variety of users within the site. Firstly, it provides a series of follies and bridges to create connections within the lake area where visitors and researchers alike can study the algae growth in a civilized/entertaining matter. Secondly, it provides hotels and lookout towers for visitors to enjoy. Thirdly, as a way to impart education about the local flora and fauna, there’s a nursery park and an aquarium for both public and researchers alike. There, researchers are able to study the long-lasting effects for the local wild-life and plant growth, while at the same time supplying a method of entertainment for the public.
