Vincent Callebaut Architecte designs for the future, a future that requires sustainability to address the consequences of a changing climate. Their project Hydrogenase was created to meet the need for a sustainable transport system. To accomplish this they have designed airships powered by seaweed.
Vincent Callebaut Architecte describes their project:
HYDROGENASE, ALGAE FARM TO RECYCLE CO2 FOR BIO-HYDROGEN AIRSHIP
Between engineering and biology, Hydrogenase is one of the first projects of bio-mimicry which draws its inspiration from the beauty and the shapes of the nature, but also and especially from the qualities of its materials and its self-manufacturing processes. The new green revolution is really in progress and enables us to design the air mobility of the foil after shock, 100% self-sufficient in energy and zero carbon emission! This inhabitated vertical aircraft inaugures a clean and ethic mobility to meet the needs of the population en distress touched by the natural and sanitary catastrophes, and all that without any runway! Its architecture is subversive and fundamentally critic towards the ways of living of our contemporary society that we have to reinvent totally! Let’s take off thanks to biofuels and let’s propel to the eco-responsible transport of the future!
