The project is about magnifying the presence of biochar. The focus is harvesting rainwater to produce potable water as a sustainability approach. The passive system collects and filters rainwater by using biochar tubes. The surface of the roof captures rainwater into the system. Integrating three vessels and layers of Biochar tubes captures the rainwater and filters rainwater down through gravity without using energy.
The project takes the filtering system to the architectural scale and makes the experience of filtration become a much bigger experience.
