This awesome Building uses smart ways of purification of water . Buildings eat more than 40% of energy and create a lot of waste. Most of them need replacing their single glazed decaying facades. In Evolo, Thai architects Achawin Laohavichairat, Montakan Manosong, and Peerapon Karunwiwat have published an fascinating idea: clip-on modular home units that stay on to existing buildings like barnacles and feed off their waste.
It really is sort of a built wetland on the surface of each pod, with vegetation absorbing the nutrients from your waste materials and filtering them. Given the quantity of waste produced by a building vs the surface provided for plants on each pod, I believe that this is more of a vision than a reality.
However it is a ingenious vision, that demonstrates how one might turn the skin of a building into more practical space, a supply of electric power from the photovoltaics, and putting plants to work.
I hope you liked our article about purification of water.
