Green Algae Proposal for The Marina Towers

August 29, 2012

A Paris based architecture firm Influx Studios proposed a new "green" transformation for the Marina Towers. The technology used in the design is relatively new. The proposal includes bio reactors that absorb carbon emissions. One of Chicago's main conflicts is the pollution due to the high traffic of cars throughout the city. The proposal includes wind turbines that provide energy as well as transforms the carbon emissions to oxygen. Other advancements would include algae tubes that transform solar radiation to bio fuel providing energy to the apartments. One of the parking levels will be used as a phytoremediation device that will purify the water to be used again. The Marina Towers were built in 1964 and could really use the update!
