Description/Abstract

In order to accommodate this, we should first test algae facades on pre-existing building shells. I have a specific interest in derelect churches in because they are plenitful and although not on historic lists, they can still be preserved through the revitalization process. All buildings cannot be saved for preservation sake, so these buildings can accomodate new programs for specific city and site needs. Injecting these new technologies into the buildings will produce a contradiction that emphasizes both the new and old architecture. The deeper meaning of this thesis embodies what the visual chroma effects of algae are on the built enviornment. This includes their presence at night as a sustainable broadcaster through the RGB colors of algae and their daylit interiors encompassing a mixture of reflected colored light.
