Floating Algae Park

by Andrew Moddrell and Christopher Marcinkoski
Type:
project
Year:
2009
Location:
New York, between Brooklyn and Manhattan, USA

The PORT architects Andrew Moddrell from Chicago and Christopher Marcinkoski from New York propose the Carbon T.A.P.// Tunnel Algae Park that will tout a series of algae pontoons to convert carbon-dioxide emissions from NYC’s busy streets into bio-fuel. The temporary floating carbon-capturing bridge between Brooklyn and Manhattan will house well thought-out wetlands, recreation facilities, and high-speed bike lanes. Just recently, the concept-park was acknowledged as the winner of the UCLA cityLAB WPA 2.0 infrastructural design competition.
