Breathable Farm Wall / wall system

Breathable Farm Wall
Breathable Farm Wall

Design concept comes from the emergence of pigment patterns on a leopard. The pigmentation patterns of a leopard changes at different stages of growth. The Breathable Farm Wall is to reduce the bathroom humidity by absorbing interior vapor with a vertebra-like seed unit. The seed unit is made from compressed recycling paper and seed. As the seeds absorb water along the way with everyday bathing activities from inside, seeds in units will begin to grow outside. The middle part of the wall holds the main planting area for seed units. With this eco-friendly architectural setting, and have a potential to provide self-sufficient food supply.
