The Perth PhotoBioReactor by Emergent Architecture will be made out of fiber-composite monocoque construction, pleated for stiffness and contains colonies of algae that require CO2 and light to generate biofuel.



This system allows continued operation in shade and also in complete darkness through the use of a helix of lights inside each algae coil. The electricity needed is generated by thin-film solar transistors that are embedded in the transparent polycarbonate apertures and will be placed as a piece of art which helps generate fuel for the masses.
