The Algaevator

July 2, 2016

Designers Jie Zhang and Tyler Stevermer teamed up with Selgascano Architects to design the Algaevator, a spiral-shaped pavilion that propagates algae in an attractive visible structure. The designers took on the project to boost awareness of algae’s uses and production. Created as part of the Burglars of Transnatural Transparency (BoTT) Lab pavilion, the Algaevator is a gravity-based algae photobioreactor built to explore the architectural possibilities of biotechnology utilities.

Three separate spirals are intercoiled between a heat-fused, water-tight, layered membrane.
Spiral 1: Introduces CO2 from the environment to the bottom of the coil via a low-energy pump
Spiral 2: Through a specially-designed valve, CO2 enters an algae-filled spiral. Bubbles gently transport algae to the top of the spiral while providing it with CO2 for photosynthesis.
Spiral 3: Once at the top of the pavilion, the algae is able to off-gas oxygen into the environment and travel back down to the bottom of the spiral for further cycling through the system.
