Semi-Artificial Photosynthesis Systems(S.A.P.S.) / Bio-mimic Architecture System Design

Semi-Artificial Photosynthesis Systems(S.A.P.S.)
Semi-Artificial Photosynthesis Systems(S.A.P.S.)

The SAPS mimics the root and stem and leaves of plants for semi-artificial photosynthesis. At the roots, we will give the water supply system within the building. In this artificial photosynthesis system, we bionic the roots, stems, veins, and leaf tissue of plants by 3D printing. We print the veins of the water in the frame of the curtain wall, which includes the water needed before photosynthesis. There are three layers of tissue in the frame, the upper cover (tempered glass), the cell frame(middle frame), the lower plate, and the artificial cells in the middle.
