SPHIRA Urban Farming

November 2, 2018

SPHIRA is a multi-scalar apparatus that focuses on bringing public attention to the portable cultivation and innovative consumption of spirulina by combining a working photobioreactor with the modern gastronomy process of spherification.

This fully automated device, controlled by an interactive mobile application, produces spheres containing high concentrations of live spirulina mixed with organic flavorings. By having a closed system with precise nutrient controls the bioreactor attempts to produce spirulina void of flavor. This allows adding various components such as coconut-pineapple juice to a concentrated spirulina solution that can then be formed into edible spheres.

SPHIRA is a project of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, developed by MAA01 2017-2018 Master in Advanced Architecture Introductory Studio students Mario Alberto Espinoza, Eduardo Chamorro, Timothy Magara and Elliott Santos, with faculty Claudia Pasquero and Carmelo Zappulla.
