Meanwhile in Germany… The world’s first ‘bio-adaptive façade’ installed on Zero Energy House | Olive Ventures Blog | sustainable housing | Scoop.it

The façade concept is designed so that algae in the bio-reactor façades grow faster in bright sunlight to provide more internal shading. The ‘bio-reactors’ not only produce biomass that can subsequently be harvested, but they also capture solar thermal heat – both energy sources can be used to power the building.
