World’s first algae-powered building

BIQ House, a 15-unit net-zero apartment complex powered by an algae-filled bio-adaptive shell, is completed in Hamburg, Germany. 129 glass bioreactor panels provide the building with thermal insulation, shading from direct sunlight, noise reduction, and a ready-to-harvest source of biomass.
